Exploring static electricity as design material for woven and hand-tufted textiles.

Through the design process it is attempted to raise awareness of invisible static electricity by altering the rather negative impression around its experience in everyday life, into an experience of moving fibers from a distance. Textile techniques as weaving and hand-tufting have been combined in order to make an installation which expresses qualities of space, creating an artificial changeable environment, a structure with floating elements which resist gravity.
