I am a textile designer and weaver, based in Borås but with strong ties to my hometown Stockholm, exploring the limits of woven structures.
During my foundation year at HV skola I developed a keen interest in bindings and structures, and in my subsequent BA and MA at the Swedish School of Textiles I learned how to combine my handweaving skills with digital tools and industrial machines. What follows is an ongoing search into the weave structure as programmable, smart system of horizontals and verticals. How can it be pushed, as a construction technique?
My MA degree work Woven Change, Shifting Expressions explores this in form of a changeable structure, shifting transparency, pattern and colours. It was awarded by Ung Svensk Form 2023, with the judges comments:
Well-crafted, subtle woven elements attract attention as they exude high-tech, while still being analogue. Decorative graphic patterns that change through light manipulation and manual power. A solid, clever, keen-eyed design piece that takes textile weaving into the future.
