Abstract [en]

The ongoing project discusses how we as a society perceive and communicate through bodily experiences. The primary aim is to apply textile into a space and also to encourage people to use their senses when experiencing at design objects and spaces. The approach in this project is not meant to lead to a finish commercial product but rather to build up a spatial environment with textile materials and open up possibilities to use it. The challenge is for people to learn to let go of the stereotypes and think in an alternative way.

This essay documents my journey from the starting point, describes the way I think and the process of work. This paper starts by giving the background to where it all began. Then it explores the tool I use to communicate, in this time is craft. There was a turning point during the experimental project I did which intended to apply textile to interior space. The upshot was how we as a society perceive and communicate through tactility. As time went by I learnt to narrow down my ideas and the work itself into one main consistent theme. As well as the work itself, the procedure is equally as important and was introduced into this essay. The forth chapter represents one illustration of how the concept can be applied. Finally is the summary of this journey.
