Adapting to New Realities: Emma Kling's Inspiring Use of Haptics in Painting

By mimicking and fusing skins-like surfaces and industrially produced fabrics in my paintings, I want to create new haptics that could possibly be used by humans as aids to navigate and adapt to new realities.

As the near future today is globally unpredictable, it is unclear how surfaces and materialities will deform with all the other expected changes. 

Emma Kling is a student at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, in the Class of Judith Eisler.
