the body landscapes

Within the the creation of these textile designs, that I created for the fashion and textile fair Première Vision in Paris I chose the topic of Atopy, which I was already working with in a free, artistic way, but now I focused more on a design approach. I was especially interested in the sensations that the designs could evoke. Therefore I’ve chosen embroidery and weaving as well as mixed media as my mediums to fulfil my tactile visions for the designs. I got inspired by the sensitivity of the body and the way it deals with pain or decay like bruises and wrinkles and incorporated these thoughts and images in the creation of the designs.
