This project explores new ways of integrating light into woven textiles, and how the artificial light could function in water to give it an aesthetic expression.
My inspiration was the phenomenon of bioluminescence which is the production and emission of light by a living organism, often found in the deep sea. With the focus to create an organic shape I worked with hand weaving where I used transparent monofilament together with optical fibres to create a see-through weave with different dimensions. By adding hand-dyed scrap fringes from the industrial weaving machine, I created a contrast between the lightness of the transparent parts and the bulky fringes.
