Soft Power
 – Giving Weight to Lightness and Lightness to Weight

I have made an installation for my degree project with objects made from foam rubber, textiles and embroidery. I make dumbbells and an exercise machine, and explore the contrast between hard and masculine body building aesthetics in colour and images, and typically soft and feminine textile handcraft. Light and sound will be important components in the installation to achieve the atmosphere that I want to create.

Materials are subordinate to the idea, but they can also inspire. I often work like this, between materials and ideas, design and art. The tactility and versatility of textiles can be used to create exciting spatial experiences. In the future, I envision myself working with different spaces – public, site specific and in the white cube.
