An inner-act

Resonance is a sensitivity to the movement of the entities and energies that build up our body. An inner-act attempts to reveal these intimate lifeforms by bringing the inner to the outer, to tap into resonance.

A composition of fragmented patterns translated from an anatomic human body. Materials that within their tissues hold protein fibres dissected from vegetables. A discovery in the relation between food and muscles both in terms of nutrition and energy, but also for the material likeness as fibres.

Death is profound and momentous, and beyond our understanding. As the soil takes care of us through the foods and fibres it provides, a resonance vibrates us to give back to the earth. A way in which our human bodies and their lifeforms are a part of a larger energetic exchange.

An inner-act seeks to find an essence of culture within nature by bringing equal position to non-human lifeforms that together make up an ecosystem in which we inner-act. The research is conceptualised in a garment resembling a second skin, acting as a mirror to human beholders.
