Nominalized Matter: Generative Textiles Procedures

Baerlecken, Daniel ; Johnson, Katherine Wright ;


This paper investigates making as a process that brings together diverse materials and combines their flow in anticipation of what might emerge. Ingold calls this approach the textility of making, which gives priority to the formation of materials as a process, in which form is generated through interventions within fields of forces and currents of materials and not through a predefined notion of an ideal outcomei, opposes the Aristotelian “hylomorphic approach” which focuses on final products.
