Drawing 1/1 translated into a weaving

From drawing to textile

Experiment within an industrial process; made in cooperation with TextielLab.

The goal was to reach the expression of my drawing, through the movement of yarns.
Weaving is a technique based on a grid structure with vertical and horizontal lines. More than turning paper into textile, I wanted to draw with yarns, textures, colours to get to a certain depth in the existing composition. The movement of the lines was an important factor which I developed, with the TextielLab in these long horizontal floats.
