MA work

Transitional Lines

Driven and inspired by lines, my work investigates soft textile properties in contrast to the hard, straight lines of metals. In my work I discuss the evolution of textiles in all dimensions.

From one to two-dimensions, a point becomes a line, a thread or a trace. That line, thread or trace then becomes a plane itself, with the potential to take on three-dimensional form. The shift from point to line is a movement and a growth; both lines and surfaces can define the scope of inner and outer space. This makes a tight relation between line and surface which is revealed by the line. It can also be vague space, blending existence and emptiness or transitional space.

Inspired by repetition found in our everyday life I develop techniques to enable constructed textiles to hold free-standing three-dimensional forms.
