CARVING MATERIAL PROPERTIES.
EMERGENT MATERIALS FOR CONTEMPORARY ART
The emerging matter designed nowadays in our laboratories is cleverly effective: scientists reproduce smart arrangements that the living matter has optimized over generations, or they structure the infinitely small to attain previously unimaginable properties. While an immaterial art has developed since the twentieth century, this new materiality in contemporary art renews its way to approach the ancient hylomorphic couple of matter / form. The artist does not carve the external form but the internal sub-structures of matter, not the object but its properties. Taking note of its passage through the world of ideas, matter arises both as a tangible and intangible presence, matter and gray matter. A performer substance, since it is effective and active, which intense presence and ability to make reality foreign to us arouse very rich aesthetic feelings. It becomes responsive, to embody interactive works of another kind with which we enter into relation directly through the language of matter, bypassing digitality. A matter to be thought of, since our thoughts are originally corporal. Thinking the limits of matter, for example, at the beginning of our process towards artificial life.
