Textile Surfaces – Threads of Camille 5

when 20 September 2021 - 24 September 2021
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 550

Textile surfaces surround us in the most diverse contexts and environments and play a decisive role in many artistic disciplines. In architecture, fashion, art, and design, the creation of experimental materials is a crucial path to the unique characters of a design. The methods do not always have to be highly complex. Even the simplest reversal of expected material properties can produce experimental and inspiring compositional ideas, and basic samples created by hand can provide visual triggers for 3D renderings.

This workshop dares utopias about what material can and should be. Based on excerpts from science fiction reading, the students will approach fantastic ideas of material composition and hybridity, materialise and visually simulate them. Each participant will write a short utopian scenario, learn analogue textile constructions and explore the hybrid use of those techniques. The focus will lie on experimenting and creating a surface that can and should undergo different stages, and a visualisation of this material transfer.
