Abstract

This paper discusses an ongoing interdisciplinary research project that develops a design and fabrication approach termed; tunable environments. This is an explorative approach, which enables updates from a digital parametric interface to be ‘pushed' into a 2D, 18x18 cm material sample, by modulating stimuli, so multi properties can be updated/tuned at high resolutions. Our prototype explores how iterative updates can be achieved, which can be temporarily frozen in time. This opens up the idea of creating Parametric Matter/circular materials, which could reduce waste that can be attributed to typical linear processes. Additionally, highly bespoke, ‘time-based’ structures could be achieved. However new implications for design and fabrication arise based on: time-lag of materials, a legacy of interactions, resetting materials as well as challenges of determining associations and desirable material properties.
