If you are a tenacious seeker of peace and tranquility and want a stable balance between your mind and body, Sacha Buliard’s responsive mat will put an end to your search. This responsive mat denominated as ‘unlearn’ helps you in maintaining a perfect equilibrium between your body and mind.
Unlearn will provide a corporeal experience to its users and will keep them engaged with their bodies. As soon as you wake up, the mat enrolls you to form a connection with its unique design and enkindle a spark within your body and soul.
These mats are made up of ecological foam and come in the size of a “tatami” and will be an easy fit for your expanse. The mat is adorned with a layer of instructions and motif and comes with three small objects for use.
The user enjoys a series of spontaneous interactions with their own body, by working in four major stages namely, ‘to wake’, to balance, ‘to explore’ and ‘to touch’. Hence the mat offers a great advantage to one who seeks calmness and composure.
The mat forms part of a project called ‘Unlearn, partition ouverte vers une conscience corporelle’, and is inspired by Steve Paxton’s “Contact-Improvisation” dance technique, where dancers use the physical laws of friction, momentum, gravity and inertia to delve into the depths of bodies and space.
The pattern on the mat is a music score from composer John Cage, called ‘Cartridge Music’. As per the makers, the abstract instructions and patterns on the mat are made to create the type of involvement that ignites body consciousness and which once lit will never dim.
