Commission for the Museum of Textile Haslach: a lasered mirror shingle installation for the "Wäsche" and a four-video presentation at the "Wasserschloss".
Life seen through the eyes of a weaver: literally (through the hole punch cards) and figuratively. what is important to the day to day existence of a weaver's life? how much information does the eye need to recognise and recreate an image? how many edges - threads, stitches, meshes..?
The ancient artificial brook, engineered for the weaving industry, shaped the layout of the town then and now and is put in the spotlight for a few weeks. It's human energy and fluidity symbolised in 4550 lasered pieces. Heterotopias in the mirrors: past, present and future united: Craft then and now, from the mechanical to the digital.
experiments with a mobile projector on the shoot. simple black and white patterns projected onto skin, clothing and smoke and the distortion this creates.

what if you made a thaumatrop from glass? will it turn into an analogue (filmic) projector? how many images and colours are necessary?

diverse little works and experiments: using textiles and various materials, investigating the space they inhabit, the room they wrap up and expand into...and sometimes eventually envelop or infrequently...superimpose.
doubling up of material, information and patterns makes fabric stand up for itself and hold itself out independently.
line drawings for a range of prints for clothing and hats;
lines get projected into space and shape three dimensional objects, the lines running in parallel or against the grain.
the illusion of movement achieved via kinetic black and white patterns.
