Response through Making

Another aspect of Material Expression is Response through Making.  Being responsive through the making process is similar to rendering a wall where the material tells you what action is required.  In the example of the calf leg shirt, the response was via sight when piecing the shirt together.  When stitching the pieces together, the response is via touch as tactile information is gleaned regarding the pliancy of the strips of leather when using it to stitch.  As the “situation talks back” (Schon 1983, p.79) the information is fed back into the process.
