MA Textile design degree work Supervisor: Prof Anna Pauli DLA habil Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design Budapest 2010
The inspirational theme of my gradual diploma is weaving as a system. With the question of how the genre of weaving can be understood in our time. In general can traditional techniques and categories be relevant in our high-tech society? Are possible aims, possible technological constraints and achievements of the weaving are incorporated into the artistic fields of our time? What role does contemporary art play in the textile as a genre?
The work is an enlarged woven structure woven from strips of turf carpet. The lawn carpet appears as a component of the fabric, the yarn. Over time, the living grass becomes one with the underlying soil and the structure is transformed into a landscape.
