summary This paper focuses on a new form making method of spontaneous materiality under limited digital control, as a supplement to the trending method of digital materiality. A specific emphasis is placed on the connection between material selection and sensational expression in the contemporary information and digital technologies era. Spontaneous materiality refers to the alteration of material attributes by natural forces. The current techniques of digital materiality rely on accurate digital control and inhibit from the intervention of any unpredictable material variable, which shows excessive scientific calculations and a loss of artistic articulation in design. In the new form making method proposed here, intentional yet limited digital control sets the material framework where the combination of soft and hard materials takes place. With the influence of gravity and spatiotemporal accumulation of selected materials, the fusion of softness and hardness brings a coexistence of different material states and qualities in one object. Thus an integration of shape and matter produces a blurring boundary between physical material and digital form, and more importantly, a sensational experience with expectational slippages of vision and touch. Additional to the ongoing discussion of computation, this design research expands the potential of computation by restricting its influence.
