TEXTILES / DIGITAL/ ANALOGUE / SPECULATIVE
Inspired by the storytelling of Afghan carpets, the approach to this project was to find a contemporary architectural related narrative. The design process started through copying historical and contemporary architectural plans.
A series of water colours and pencil drawings emerged. The transcription to a 3d software and traditional prototyping also investigates metaphorical and illusionary qualities of a three-dimensional illusion.
