Det kommer inte alltid att vara så här. En undersökning om mönster och förgänglighet
The purpose of this project was to to find a way for textile patterns to talk about its own, and our, inevitable death. By doing so I hoped to incorporate questions about transience into daily life. I assumed that from a decentralized background position, patterns on everyday objects have a unique ability to pose complex questions that can be interpreted over time. The investigation was inspired by how russian constructivists looked at everyday objects as equals, and let them carry the spirit of the revolution. In the process I tried to find out how, and if, a philosophical message can be transmitted through design and how different components of a pattern can work together to express that message. Resulting in two textile patterns with textile motifs, my work showed that design definitely can raise metaphysical questions and may as well have an advantage over art when trying to reach people in their own reality.
