LAUGHLIN, Zoe

The Performativity of Matter: Greatest Hits & New findings

Series: Evening Lecture
Date: Wednesday 11 March 2015
Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 81 mins



Materials perform. Stuff is constantly getting up to things. Matter is doing all of the time, at varying scales of time and space, in order to exist and generate the world of objects. The Performativity of Matter is a demonstration led exploration of materials, where the micro is rendered macro, the inanimate is shown to be animate, and material science meets performance. This is your chance to witness some of the most wondrous matter on earth; from shape-memory paperclips to magnetic liquids, non-Newtonian fluids and self healing concrete.


Zoe Laughlin is a co-founder/director of the Institute of Making and the Materials Library project. Working at the interface of the science, art, craft and design of materials, her work ranges from formal experiments with matter, to materials consultancy and large-scale public exhibitions, events and programmes.






All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
