Using the performance of air as a research and design methodology in textile allows a poetic take on the direction of design for the future which shows how in the context of sustainability, energies will be used not exclusively for harvesting electrical energy or to claim air pollution. Contrarily air will mutate to the production or transformation process of material and lead to the enhancement of our relationship to space and the current perception of material properties and qualities. Air is found in our environment and acts as an invisible material. The air momentum is about a human vision, perception and relationship to our surroundings and to the natural boundaries of air. Air manifests itself in time and can be documented as an impulse or an action. At the same time air is metaphorically used for 'nothing' or 'non existing' and 'non-material' because it cannot be seen and it is not easy to control; the indifference towards it leads to pollution and distopian future scenarios such as the development in geoengineering. The negative connotations air has in our language could be reversed into positive ones that would lead to air being elevated to a tangible notion and appreciation of space.
This project aims to have an impact on imagination and on the relevance of air, even if indisputable, it is still mainly not regarded as such. As the project suggests air is always connected to dreams, the wish to fly, lightness and inspiration, and the task of the project is to communicate the poetry of air in a tangible way. The project combines knowledge about physical laws with poetic experience.
