The Image-Matter: Emerging Materials and Imaginary Metamorphosis

The Image-Matter: Emerging Materials and Imaginary Metamorphosis
Library Shelf Location 05.PEYS
Publication Date 2016

It is now possible for scientists to control the structure of matter at a scale so minute that previously unimaginable properties emerge.

Organic matter may even be hybridized with non-organic matter, as the border between the inert and the living increasingly blurs. Consequently, we need to rethink our relation to, and apprehension of, the world.

With the advance of materials science, the artist need not sculpt the external form but the internal sub-structures of matter, not the object but its properties.

In The Image-Matter, scientist and artist Dominque Peysson offers tools to help us comprehend the new vision of the world proposed by materials science, and encourages us to perform the necessary transformation of our imaginations.

Featuring the work of international artists: Achim Menges, Adam Brown, Berndnaut Smilde, Daan Roosegaarde, Etienne Krähenbül, Phil Ross, and Philip Beesley.
