[R]ed[U]x Lab’s installation for the 2012 Come Up to My Room, Terra Fabricata goes beyond digital craftsmanship and explores the creation of artificial, interactive environments. Greeted by a fabricated membrane that precariously bifurcates the room, visitors explore and interact with two environments. Proximity and acoustic changes beneath the membrane correspond to reactions by components above it, engaging light as a currency in a primitive ecosystem. The evolution of art has continuously affected not only the imagination but also the senses. In this work, digital fabrication evolves from a production process to an art form. Terra Fabricata uncovers the potential of digital fabrication as a procreator of immersive environments that both stimulate the senses and simulate living systems responding.
