Textile letters.


During my graduation project I was searching for a way to integrate my letter project in my concept. Because it’s such an important thing of who I am, and I really wanted to show it to ‘the world’.

After some thinking I decided to make a small project called ‘Textile letters’, which was especially created for my graduation project. The idea of it was: I made some letters, all the same. In the package were fabrics, a colour scheme, inspiration images, … . I send this letter to 5 very talented people, Renilde De Peuter (BE), Inge Slock (BE), Karen Barbé (CH), Louise Mills (UK) and Karina Rios (DM). And asked them if they could create something with the letter I’ve send them. They were totally free to do wathever they wanted to do. Afterwards they had to return their creations back to me, so they could be exhibited at my graduation show.

You must be wondering why I’m doing this kind of project ? Well, I think it’s very interesting how several people interpret something in their own way. It goes from an universal package, to a personal story. And I find that very touching. It’s a sing that, however people might be inspired by the same colours, images or techniques, everyone will turn it in their own world. That’s what creativity and personality is about.

I just want to thank Renilde, Inge, Karen, Louise and Karina a million. Because I didn’t said that enough. You work was so beautiful, and I’m still overwhelmed by all the time you’ve given to create something for the projects. Can’t express how grateful I am.

Soon more pictures of the project, because there is a lot more to show.

    wow! There’s no doubt you’ve received a valuable piece of art from each one of them, and I’m sure that at the exhibition it looked like a great artwork altogether!

    Best wishes :)*
