With Immanent Elasticity, soma architecture has once again pursued a speculative conception of space that deals with the complex interactions between perception and geometric principles. The spatial structure of the exhibition can be described by “Lsystems” (named after the Hungarian biologist Aristid Lindenmayer), which, based on the reproduction of basic rules, are also used to simulate plant growth, among other things.
The installation at the MAK is reminiscent of a living, growing organism despite the artificial nature of the material, and appears chaotic and ambiguous in spite of its stringent adherence to rules and clear geometric structure.
