Title of research
Farming Textiles: Transforming textile expressions by using plants to integrate growth,
wilderness and decay into textile structures for interior
I want to create structures for the interior that challenge the way how we perceive and live with textiles and that are adaptive and responsive through natural processes and material transformations by growing and degrading.
Textiles for me are a medium for connections. I am interested in creating textile hybrids to challenge what we understand as textiles and how to use them. Bridging textiles and
electronics for many years, resulted in what I call „Communicative Surfaces“ and explores poetic interactions between textile surfaces, objects and people. After exploring the connections between textiles and porcelain I am now interested in bridging them with natural processes by using seeds as a design material. Consequently, these materials open up the discussion on alternative aesthetics and forms of interaction when designing interior textiles and spatial scenarios with them.
