Liquid Proxemics

Chiara Catalini, Agnes Tatzber


With “LIQUID PROXEMICS” we observe which structures form in a constantly teased environment. Based on the clash of ecosystems as triggers of disease and in relation to the transformative impact of the covid-19 pandemic, we analyze the tension between man and environment on the basis of the encounter of different liquid materials and propose speculative methods of how this could affect an architectural proposition. The experiments within the petri dish, teach us about the precariousness of the human -environment relationship. By witnessing the interaction between water, oil and ink, we are frequently reminded of the vulnerability of the environment. We developed architectural language with the idea of interaction.  The assembling of the extracted shapes on a time axis creates a spatial structure characterized by unpredictability and lack of control.
