Hard bodies/Soft spaces
We have a solid understanding of fabric/clothing against the human body, however is it possible that textiles can have a stronger presence when taken away from the classic forms and spaces that we are used to seeing, ie pants, shirts etc. By removing the body as much as possible from the fabric during process and experimentation, and then only bringing it back in the form of the viewer, can we create a more interesting dialogue between fabric and architecture (space). Furthermore this installation explores the realms to which textiles can be pushed with experimentation into metal casting of fabrics.
