Marble in a Moment
Textile crafts often have a big measure of patience behind them.
The opposite is direct, a captured moment through a camera lens.
In this series of two hand tufted pieces the variable of time was explored. Can a moment be captured with the same speed and accuracy as a photo, but in another way?
In this project the moment was captured by marble paint, which was allowed to move freely in water to become a picture of a second.
The picture was then translated in to a hand tufted surface implemented with optical fiber connected to LEDs.
In the end it was given it a certain measure of change. A gentle light that pulses in and out through the optical fibers. A proof that no moment can really be captured.
