Polymorphic Blanket

Merle Flügge


The video of the Polymorphic Blanket is part of the project Twofold – The Last Trace of Inhabitation. Twofold speculates on a future hyper-interactive domestic interior with black mirrored surfaces where the blanket might be the last tangible, intimate surface capturing physical traces of inhabitation. But what if these traces are also lost?

The Polymorphic Blanket explores the shapeshifting transformation of a blanket’s surface. The blanket – being the most intimate surface of our domestic spaces – is only able to show a temporary trace now, as if hardening to stone it freezes its last imprint.
