DEAR DEER - Exploring the possibilities of materials of animal origin from a textile design perspective
University of Borås, Faculty of Textiles, Engineering and Business.
2015 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

Through manipulation of the materials and creation of sculptural forms, the knowledge in textile design was used to develop alternative methods for working with materials of animal origin. The project touches the issue of consumption by accentuating the fascinating features of animal materials and proposes a way of taking care of materials looked upon as disposals. It questions how we value what resources we have in our surroundings and how we use them. Or more important – how we are not using them.
