Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis
Layered light is a textile design project aiming to explore light as a design variable and its abilities to - in combination with layers of laser cut textiles - create dynamic patterns. The reason being to explore how light can be used to create the very pattern itself and what the textile quality can bring to the expression. Through a practice based working method, laser cutting has been used to manipulate different textile materials, that in combination with movement have resulted in range of design examples displaying various effects of the technique. Three of the found effects have been used to take forth a collection of patterns drawing inspiration from the elusive beauty of light in nature. One of which has been produced in a larger scale, exemplifying how the expression could be used in a spacial context. The result implicates the usefulness of integrating light early on in a design process and how textile and light can be combined to enhance each other all well as displaying a whole new expression for laser cut textiles.
