pattern obsessed: silkscreen printing, sewing, upholstery
pattern obsessed is a textile installation in which I explore the diversity within one design. I alter the rhythm of the pattern by using different colour accents and optically change the shapes of negative spaces. Printed yardages turn an empty corner into a living space, which at first seems to be pleasant and cozy. However, after a while, obsessively repetitive pattern creates an overwhelming and uncomfortable atmosphere.
