SUSTAINABLE INTERACTIVE SURFACE

"The performance of surfaces are evolving day per day. It has even, become a frequent topic of research in different areas such as architecture, media, fashion (textile) and more. This has resulted in the creation of smart surfaces, which can be applied in the innovation of several products."

The objective of “Interactive Surfaces”project was to develop a sustainable interactive surface. for that reason, was used as structural material a Colombian natural fiber (Fique). To get the interactive property, we began by exploring with different technology applications. Afterwards, using the basic principles of electronics, we built the circuits, so that they could be integrated within the fiber through construction layers and folding structure, at in the end we achieved the interactive surface by programming the circuits.

The sustainable interactive surface was taken into account, from extraction of the fiber to its degradation, that means, when the life cycle of the interactive surface is finished, then the electronic items could be separated from the fiber and both of them can be re-used into a new application.

The production of smart materials is not only the process of digitalization, but also on how it could be used for the non-standardised practices to transform the traditional materials. How the basic interactive applications allow us to rethink the traditional boundaries between architect and builder, designer and craftsman?..

The proposal was originated with the exploration of interface surface in architecture. We developed a modular labyrinth as a proposal of the Via Crucis installation, which has special environment and is created by interactive surface of paper and electronic components. This way we can generate a harmonic, natural and traditional atmosphere situated in Franz Liszt period. „Via Crucis“ of 1878/79 is a musical compositions inspired by the 14 Stations of the Cross from Franz Liszt.
