Abstract [en]

Daily life resembles a textile pattern. Both are built on forever by repeating things. Both transform every second by the effect of chance.The repetition of pattern relaxes us, and the appearance caused by the chance inspires us. Both trigger a chain of imagination in unique harmony. Textile pattern is a medium to express the chance. Any pieces of daily life become a pattern. The pieces of daily life, which are discovered by the “third eye” (different angle than usual), become a point of departure of the chain of imagination. The viewers have freedom to interpret the design in the way they want. They connect their personal memories with the design, which makes the differences in reaction. The story continues to be narrated while transforming its appearance. Storytelling is a succession from designer to viewer, as if to draw a spiral. One day, I took pieces of wood. They had lines on their surface. Each line had a unique shape because they were a part of an annual ring. I saw them like a human fingerprint. There was nothing the same. Daily life as ordinary, but special days. There is nothing the same in a usual day. Pieces of wood are pieces of daily life, it is a point of departure for a chain of imagination. I narrate a story of it in textile pattern. Storytelling pattern is an endless chain of imagination.
