An Exploration of the Wind as Yarn
My major project takes inspiration from the invisible patterns of the wind that is unseen by the naked eyes yet is felt by the senses. By weaving together an invisible landscape with a visible one, ‘An Exploration of the Wind as Yarn’ strives to translate the intangible volumes that fill the spaces within our physical reality. The aluminium used in my project has been treated in a series of textile processes to visually soften its surfaces; it has as well been further contemplated as a yarn for both materials which contain memory within their structure. The reflective nature of this material subjects it to many environmental changes, therefore enhancing its physical connection to its surroundings.

Domenica is an artist and designer who applies textile thinking to spatial installations, who is particularly interested in the perception one has in relation to their surroundings. Through her work she alters and adorns the landscape with thoughtfully constructed materials; in doing so she encourages the viewer to appreciate some of the unseen elements within the environment. Her work can be understood as an abstraction from textile construction methodologies that extends to integrate a variety of media and processes in the form of sculpture and public installation.
