Abstract [en]

For this project I want to cheer my subconscious passion for animals and use them as inspiration and as a starting point. Animals are mostly interesting in the project when it comes to their surface and their structure. The work has been a development of structures and techniques in an experimental way of working with textiles and mixed media on garments. The aim is to explore how structures can form garments. Comparing to a traditional design process this work is explored by a reversed design method where the material are formed into shapes or modules and then put together as a garment. So the form has been secondary to the surface structure of the garments. It is also important that the collection urge viewers to touch and feel the structure and hopefully also encourage people to understand and get involved with the fabric and what it´s maid of. The work shows that structure in textile is a lot about levels and layers in the surface area. The investigation in the work is about creating a three-dimensional feeling that is almost like a landscape to explore. During the process it has been found that it´s a thin line between when the garment has a specific surface structure and when it is a garment decorated with modules of a certain material. For me this could be a neverending life project. A project that can continue into several outfits in various techniques and materials but the idea could be developed by putting up rules like using only waste material or material that has been given to you.
