Tokyo Fiber ‘09 Senseware at La Triennale di Milano

Tokyo Fiber ‘09 Senseware

Kenya Hara; Exhibition Director introduces Tokyo Fiber´09 SENSEWARE that took part of LA Triennale di Milano from April 22nd to April 27th.

"Japan´s artificial fibers are a new SENSEWARE." Comparing Stone Age tools as a trigger for human creativity so does diferent media can trigger it further; technology, materials, structural or chemical innovations.

Hara asks one to "imagine how the new artificial fibers that have evolved through the aplication of high technology will spur humans to a new wave of creation. Some fibers are as fine as individual cells, some are more pliant than rubber and some are electrically conductive... " Tokyo Fiber exhibits the outcome of the creative process involving this new fibers, it includes, architects, designers, artists and creative people with a creative input willing to innovate in the fibers domain and bring forward new possibilities

"The exhibition representes an intersection of technology, materials and talent, all oriented towards the future manufacturing."

One of the intents is to stimulate the senses, but Hara mentions than more than the senses an excitement for the future will be sensed. ??? The future can be felt according to Hara.

The materials and technology have a rather cold look about them, it will take a closer look to find out how the senses are stimulated.
