Depth of Light

Presented as part of the Central Saint Martins Degree Show, this project aimed at creating three-dimensional textiles with an architectural feel. How could a wall be dissolved into a textile? 

By combining casting and construction techniques with traditional weave processes and structures, a hybrid material manufacturing method is achieved, marrying craft and industry. 

Contrasting the hard, cast elements with the soft, textured yarns produces a surface that is at once familiar and welcoming, yet cold and austere. 

These pieces act as partition screens, making you aware of their surface and materiality, as well as the space beyond.
