Designed by Andrea Mancuso & Emilia Serra analogia #001 is an alteration of space perception, an ethereal experience provoking the spectator to reinvestigate the functionality of the objects surroundings them.
The installation was on show at "testbed1" as part of the exhibition "a few friends", curated by will alsop, during the London design week 2011.
From the designers:
Analogia #001 is made with variably sized Merino wool on a net of fishing lines fixed from ceiling to floor and from wall to wall.
Firstly, the space was analysed with a 3D software in order to position the fishing lines that created the framework for the sketching-wool. Having the basic structure we explored the intriguing freedom of drawing in the air.
The name derives from the italian word for analogy and the concept grew during the process of its construction. In fact while we were applying the wool, studying every “brushstroke”, we realised that the process was a meticulous replication of sketching.
The installation inspires a feeling of ‘surprise’ in the viewer, which comes from seeing the materialisation of the thought itself.
