Felterings
will consist of 3 sculptural objects made from felted sweaters. The objects mimic industrial forms and imply action or a mechanical function, but in fact, have none, simply are forms.
The forms were created using a 3D software called RHINO. Once virtually created, the forms were"unrolled" into patterns, printed out and then physically recreated using felted sweaters and sewing, a translation from the digital to analog, the industrial to hand-crafted, masculine to feminine.
