Therefore, they can not only carry themselves, but also the human body.
The volumes are built up, thread by thread, on a custom-made weaving loom.
Having a subject in mind, I start experimenting and sketching 3-dimensionally with materials, shapes and colours, creating an imaginary world or story, with its own atmosphere.
From here I begin to work towards the application and purpose of the design, narrowing down by evaluating every creative step and outcome of experiments.
The desire to bring textile into the interior in a different way than we are used to, resulted in a technique that creates fragile looking skeletons, hat give the suggestion of a solid volume.
A lack of support and hollowness make them seem on the edge of breaking, though their structure is strong and sturdy.
I’ve always been fascinated by the human body, how it functions, how it behaves, how we present it and how it relates to a space.Textile crafts enable a person to create something by hand relatively fast with relatively little means.Weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting etcetera are all very approachable ways to create, but unfortunately are often seen as old fashioned.Every concept or design is different and therefore requires a different medium or discipline.The mediums I choose to communicate my designs can range from film, to textiles, to interior products, to garments, to trend forecasts and more, but also combinations of these.
