Nordic Textiles

 

An installation in the Abecita's Nordic Textiles Award gallery.  See a video of it in operation below.  Borås is the most important centre for textiles in Sweden and the University is the centre for textle design and engineering nationally.  The Nordic Textiles Award is a prize of 250,000 Swedish kroner (about £20,000) given every other year and leading to an exhibition of the artist's work in the University's Textile Museum. Hence the existence of the Award gallery at the Abecita.

Column of hot air drives it?
Tom Wilson: Some such, Ray - could be just room temp.
I like this one - like a jellyfish inviting you to dance!
Tom Wilson: That's a nice interpretation, Elizabeth! smile
It looks like an old fashioned parachute to me Tom!
Tom Wilson: Elizabeth's interpretation is much more poetic, Richard smile

This shade reminds me of my enemy number one Tom - Jelly fish. After a sting in Sicily , I was driven almost insane ten days later by the itching.
Tom Wilson: Elizabeth has a kind take on that!
I guess this is reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe's dress.
Tom Wilson: Chris and Bill have beaten you to that interpretation, Mary - I like Elizabeth's take on it best smile
Chris beat me to it, Tom !
Tom Wilson: Keeps doing it, don't he!?
that disco ball is a nice added touch.
Tom Wilson: Adds a certain something smile
