Fragments of Information

Sample collection of handmade lace. Weaving with glass beads combined with crocheted dyed nylon thread. Lace being a historical status symbol, I tried to illustrate how we currently can be exploited through loopholes in the digital landscape in order for others to gain influence and power on a social, corporate and political level. Misplaced information, false representations, lack of regulations and transparency.

Material-based research project I started during quarantine. I used plastic bags which I shredded and crocheted with. The idea was to try and enhance the value of this seemingly worthless material through textile handcraft. I also worked with different heating and melting techniques to create a distortion, manipulating the plastic from one form into another.

Group project from 2019 where we worked with different departments to create a new, sustainable souvenir for London. We decided to collect and rework garbage and discarded objects from the streets of London; in the end we created a mobile out of these.

Tuareg Interpretation

A modern interpretation of Tuareg jewellery. ‘I took basic shapes that reference the Tuareg and produced these in unpractical proportions. The metal pieces felt and looked unfunctional - the challenge was to make them functional again through use of the entire body’.
