About Pressure Flooring And Surfaces
B-surfaces contain liquids encapsulated within a resilient polymer shell. The result is an interactive floor tile or horizontal surfaces that responds to pressure as well as electric charge. Ones footsteps are temporarily recorded by the movement of fluids within the surface.
According to designers Gianfranco Barban and Gregg Brodarick, b-surfaces are intended to transform movement into memory, appropriating the floor as a tool for creative experssion.
