Traces of Everyday Embedded in Textile

July 12th 2010

The ‘Decay’ project explores how traces of time and use can be embedded in textile. By wearing a carbon fibre suit over a white blouse, textile designer Marie Ilse Bourlanges captured the gestures of the body bending, stretching, scratching and rubbing.

The transfer imprint on the blouse was then translated into a pattern of lines that ebb and flower across the textile.
