Agility in norm

WORK IN PROGRESS

Halfway through my work scholarship supported by the Task Force Textiles, ABK Stuttgart and the Innovationsfond Kunst 2021 MWF Baden-Württemberg first prototypes of 3D-knitted sweaters made of merino wool have already been created in cooperation with a knitting factory.
The manual yarn dyeing process was integrated into the industrial production process of a Knit&Wear machine and and now offers insights into poetic color phenomena in the form of intarsia in DIN A4 format on the sweaters.

My interest is to bring intuitive handmade work and standardized industrial processes into a dialogue in such a way that a unique common language emerges. The objective is a series of 3D-knitted unique pieces, which are not limited to their function, but transport their own history and empathy through the manufacturing process.
