“Inside these “new clothes”, using their formal language, she creates a multi-layered, sewn-up autonomous space which is independent of the body inside. At the same time, the space is soft and flexible, open and unstable – in fact, it is a source of endless exploration.”

This installation has been created as further development of Sissel’s original artwork Becoming Escargotapien and digital architecture student research at the faculty of architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava.

“One Size Fits All” combines two long-term artistic research projects of Danica Pišteková: Sewn as a Site and Diagrammatic Genealogies. They both examine the space between body and clothing and speculate on the shapes, borders, colors, topologies and perforations of this in-between-space. Soft semantics and materials give rise to complicated architectural forms that are worn as they wrap about bodies – human bodies as well as bodies of architecture.

Nebulae is a research project created by students and teachers of Department of Architecture, Academy of Fine Arts and Design (AFAD) in Bratislava, Slovakia, within the subject Platforms of Material Prototyping led by Danica Pistekova and Kristina Rypakova. The interdisciplinary project investigates borders of architecture in 21 century, tests new materials (3D mesh spacer fabric, Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) and explores new design methods, from series of prototypes to evaluation in haptic and material fabrication in 1:1 scale. The resulting objects could be classified in a wide range of soft, analog woven cloud structures, unexact geometries, uncontrolled agregates or shaped trussing, where the skin and structure are not divided entities, but the partners in dialogue.

“In the era of digital technologies architecture strives for complexity. It is only natural, that it often reaches for fabric as its medium. The micro-scale structure of textile determines the macro-scale of the object, making the fabric structures ideal for the exploration of control in complexity. Made of an incredibly high number of intricate small details, usual examples of textile architecture show unusual tidiness in large figures. The natural softness and elasticity allow for light tensile structures such as minimal surfaces for temporal variable objects suitable for easy deployment or spectacular interactivity.”
