Distort & Transform

DESCRIPTION

Based on the idea of translating the digital research and exploration of the experimental textile materials of Zeitguiseds video GEIST.XYZ into "real" haptic objects, the textile installations for Zeitguised emerged within mutual inspiration from both sides. 

Using the traditional way of knotting the carpet »Distort & transform« yet oversteps the shape and idea of a classic rug by alienating its outer shape. 

The carpet is handmade in Nepal made of 100% tibetan wool, natural died.
