Dry Puddle, Soft Grid
Installation -soft sculptures
This work was the result of multiple material experiments, as part of the Cartae Open School program. The main goal was to play with opossing properties, such as rigid-and-soft, dry-and-wet using materials related to textile production.
I chose to thread naturally dyed wool through an MDF pegboard creating a soft grid. The wool is dyed using cochineal that produced a number of pinks. The second pieces is a wet felted wool rug in the shape of a puddle. Both allude to the body and how it moves in space, the objects are present as barriers, or places where one can get stucked.
