Konstantin Schmölzer's Mutationen Zoetrope, presented at Vienna Design Week 2012, shows a fictitious living chair "between reality and animation".
Part of design collective Dunbar's Number Mutationen Exhibition, Schmölzer was one of the participating designers reflecting on the notion of mutation - the modification of existing structures, definitions and schemas.
"In 2006 Sedes Cohorresco started as a shape study which uses a kind of paradox for its form language. It expresses movement like it would intent action. This frozen shape was realized as a stereo lithography scale model and published in several magazines and newspapers."
"Later the video installation‚ 'Hello ... I am a chair.' introduced the concept of Sedes Cohorresco from a personalized perspective to the spectator. In this work the chair is animated as a fictitious character and holds a monologue about its current situation of doubt and the thoughts about its own identity."
"In 2012 Sedes Cohorresco finds itself in a position between reality and animation. The Zoetrope."
