Looming is a moving sculpture of circling shapes. The stretching textile material is processed into a lightweight construction. The person wearing the sculpture enters into a dialogue with the floating circles. The work investigates the scope of the human body and its effect on the surrounding space.
The loom is a moving construction, the cadence measured by the beat of weaving repeated patterns.
It’s like life: a flow of change, but there is always cohesion. Inspired by circular shapes in nature such as the consecutive seasons and the rhythm of day and night.
The work represents a balance between stillness and the ever-accelerating speed in which we are moving forward. In the movement research of the wearer, the most beautiful forms arise intuitively. Organically developing from a flat circle into a multi-layered spiral. The imagery is poetic: a flower unfolding its petals, the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, the peacock dancing his mating ritual.
The music is composed live by Mink Steekelenburg (Winterdagen).
For these sculptures recycled material is used.
