I wanted to create optical illusions that grab the viewers’ curiosity and make them want to come closer. The motifs are Gordian knots that wriggle over the threads in 3D. Inspired by neon signs, graffiti, old tapestries. I wanted to show how traditional crafts can be intertwined with modern expressions.

The skipped, unwefted warp lets light through, causing the impossible knot motif to hover visually above the warp. A tension arises here, highlighting the textile craft in a new way.
