For all of us, chance encounters with things can evoke very personal memories and associations that we instantaneously emotionally identify with them. However, is it possible to stir up reminiscences with impersonal objects?
In the project Pool 17 I have taken my inspiration from my grandparents’ empty, disused indoor pool to produce a semi-finished textile collection. Numerous details from the current state of the pool, as well as individual motifs that are no longer there, are re-shaped to make designs: on the one hand to capture the specific place, and on the other to arouse memories. In the process, the project works at a visual, tactile and olfactory level in order to potentially trigger memories in the recipients themselves.
