Material means more than simply a raw substance. The ways in which we obtain, process and dispose of the material says a lot about how we perceive ourselves as humans on this planet and our relation to nature.
In the form of artistic-material research, the project focuses on the raw material wood in textile design and explores its transformative and multi-dimensional character, in the process reaching beyond the purely material level. What if we were to encounter material with more respect and humility and to use and waste it more intelligently? If we were to view trees as more than just material resources and air filters, and ask ourselves again what a tree is, should be and can?
