Abstract [en]

I have explored the combination of sound, textile and space. How can one create textiles to use as sound dampening material in an arts and craft practice?

To enhance the architectural aspect of textile as one of the five building materials I have chosen to weave walls. Walls don´t have to be straight or go from floor to ceiling but they should somehow create room and divide the space. I felt the need of walls working within Konstfack because of the distraction of fellow students in the open space classroom. Torn walls tells a story, we see the left traces. These traces I wanted to convert into woven textile.

Sounds of people and objects in public spaces bounces between hard surfaces often without dampening, this creates an environment that causes stress and distraction. In Virginia Wolf´s essay “A room of Ones Own” (1929) she points at how important it is to create a workspace for the professional you, to take place and be part of the public realm.

A big part of this master project has been making the actual materials to build with and executing fibre. Does the material do the job of sound absorption? Wool and silk both have a fibrous cell, which is suitable for sound absorption they also have low flammability and is biodegradable; therefore I chose to work mainly with these fibres. I share my knowledge through the experience of the space I create. How to create o Room of one´s own in an open office.
