THE PROCESS OF
"GLOW IN THE DARK"
This project was about making a spa in the brutalist building Schou and Epa in Copenhagen. The building have large rooms and not a lot of light comes in through the windows. I found the darkness interesting and wanted to highlight that through the textiles. I also wanted the textiles to reflect as much light as possible so that artificial light wasn't necessary. The textiles were supposed to divide the big room into smaller spaces. I weaved with copper which have properties that are antibacterial and can also hinder electronic waves. It can also reflect light and because of the stiffness of the material it can stand with almost no support. I experimented with knitting and weaving techniques. I did 3D renderings, modells and drawings of the spaces and of the textiles were to be used as space dividers.
