A performative group show at Berlin’s V4ULT, all para-aramid synthetic fiber-covered fingers point to ‘Breathing Kevlar, Perforated Skin’, open for one night only, November 27.
Featuring work by Naja Ankarfeldt, Alex Dolan, Olivia Erlanger, Mia Goyette, Martin Kohout, Hanne Lippard, Aude Pariset, Anna Sagström and Anne de Vries, a blurb littered with references to Screen Ops Tactical Gloves and their multi-role functioning both out in the field and on the touchscreen, the possibilities are looking promising:
“When the panel is touched, the wave is absorbed.
Vibrations and frequencies on a x/y axis.
To handle in order to manipulate, alter, or otherwise affect, in an adverse way. Glide your fingertips on top of the plane, and press gently the palm of your hand against the surface. Flat, curved, be tangent to (a surface) at a certain point.
Layer fabrics to improve their handle, appearance and performance. Stitch or laminate an interfacing fabric. Insulated by capturing air in space.
Thermochromic being. Sensitive to the sun.
Direct touch can be bypassed by using a different technique – rather than pressing with the soft skin of an outstretched fingertips, the finger is curled over, so that the tip of a fingernail can be used instead.
Patented Tactical Touch precision.”
