AUSTRIA | MISCHER’TRAXLER: THE IDEA OF A TREE & COLLECTIVE WORKS

‘Now and Then, How Sustainable was my Sustainability?’
The research will be part of TOTAL CHANGE—NIEUWE GLOBAL GESTALTUNG #001

How can you convince a machine to socialize? How can you bring it in step with nature? To what degree can you make it human-powered? These were questions that brought the Vienna based design studio and duo Mischer’Traxler to experiments such as ‘The Idea of a Tree’ and ‘Collective Works’. The results: a machine that let its produce be guided by the amount of light it receives, like a tree, and a vain one that only started to function when people came closer and showed interest in its functioning. The objects that came out of this were never the same.
