OPPOSITE APPROACH Motsatt tillvägagångsätt
In this project I want to combine working with textiles with digital image editing. I want to digitize something material and materialize something digital, to re-create a digital image into a textile work. For this I investigate Instagram to get a context for my case. I want to examine an aesthetic that involves consumption and beauty. From this I am creating a method that makes craft an exciting tool and with which, we can explore the contemporary that surrounds us. Thus, we can work in a process that is both analog and digital. I want to investigate how the material changes as I work with it through various textile techniques and through that find a way to process it so that the textiles get a digital feeling. I work with pictures in Photoshop where I manipulate them in different ways and I transfer them to interpretations in textiles. The work involves collective contemporary emotions regarding the need to fit in. I hope to say something about our digital-present.
