The PleatFarm

“The PleatFarm” is an artistic research of the dialogue with the materiale and an investigation of the nature inside the material.

It is experiments with geometry in a volumetric scale that relate to or is lager than the human body and with folding techniques in the objects – with repetition and scale differences in the folds. It is a investigation and a search for the inner shape of the material – the artefact within the material.

“The PleatFarm” is also an investigation of the dialogue between the artefact and the movement of the human body. What happens when the body interacts with the artefact? What occurs when insisting on searching for qualities of movements from inside the artifact? Which a character occur?

“The Duet” has been shown  at t the exhibition “The PleatFarm” at Takkeloftet at the Operahouse in Copenhagen 2017, at the Culture Costume and Dress conference, at Birmingham City University 2017, “Everything and everybody as material conference” at the Textile Fashion Centre at Borås University 2017 .
