Hofstetter Kurt derived a new, aperiodic weave-structure from his work Im Doppel, a sculptural, materialized irrational model in which chaos and order exist at the same time.
This resulted in Ambient Tactile Art by Hofstetter Kurt, which is unconsciously experienced in the weave of everyday life as an irrational structure, a tactile fabric which is consciously remembered on the skin as a new art form.
The Hofstetter-binding is based on this irrational structure, a new weave-binding technique that is used in the production of aperiodic weaves. It is his legacy from a thirty-thousand-year-old weaving culture that recognizes exclusively periodic structures.
The recent sale of the patent for the Hofstetter-binding to the international firm TECAS SA initiates the industrial production and marketing of many hundred-thousand meters of the aperiodic weave, which contains the irrational structure in the weave as the artistic intention behind Hofstetter Kurt’s new Ambient Tactile Art. By implementing the patent protection around the world and through the industrial manufacture, a parallel, large-scale art project in public space will be realized: Ambient Tactile Art makes the material accessible to humanity in an unlimited edition.
