This exhibition shows glimpses of the two years Postdoc Project "Inspired by nature, temporal and structural patterns in Textiles". The project has been funded via Vetenskapsrådet (The Swedish Research Council, reference number: 2016-00181) and has been conducted as an International Postdoc at Gothenburg University, Academy of Music and Drama, as well as at Aalto University, Department of Design. Aiming to explore rhythms found in nature and how they can be translated into new forms of textile design expressions. Posing the question: How could the ever changing sunlight, the movement of water and wind, the growth principles of plants and trees be studied, documented and their essence extracted into new forms of design expressions? The context is new sustainable design approaches, which build on the strategy to base future design on form, shape, imagery, growth principles, and organizing principles of nature in order to reach long-time sustainability. What started out as an artistic investigation in design research turned into an aesthetic exploration of microscopic photography and its 3-dimensianl metamorphose in Fine Art. Exhibition held at Sirenfestivalen, 19th January 2019, Galleri Fyra små Rum in Kvarnbyn/Mölndal, Sweden. Collaboration with Textile Concert at Katakomberna in Kvarnbyn/Mölndal, Sweden.
