Chaos strikes structure / structure meets chaos
For some time I was fascinated by the idea to combine the felting with the braiding. When felting the fibres condense chaotically, the connection when braiding or weaving follows mathematical rules.
It was nice to learn that these strong contrasts harmonize together, unite willingly and preserve their corresponding strengths anyway.
The seat cushions are a preliminary work for the two wall hangings “life” and “land and water”. The goal was to find as many braid pattern in which no more than two lines of the contrasting colour are skipped.
Out of the basic colours (light / dark) caused by the felting, occur darker or lighter nuances, depending on what colour the other superimposes. Despite this, the contrasts are preserved.
