JLM Design Week
Jerusalem

One Year acrpet

The work uses the tapestry's place as an abstract or figurative reading of cultural history, to document a significant year in my personal history. Obsessive documentation of the day-to-day parameters of my life, transformed in real-time into laborious weaving practices that create an infographic image of life.

May 2020
Rothschild Gallery
Tel-Aviv

Processor

At work, I collect information from different audiences regarding clothing habits and fashion. I translate it through analogous means into a textile pattern.

The documenting textile is a changing material that is influenced by the participation of the audience. Measurement and documentation are used in it both as a process of creation, as a means of mapping and as a processed product. It allows me and the audience to dynamically and reflectively observe the recording of culture.
