For my final project, I decided to highlight a conflict that accompanies me because of my decision, in more than one case, to integrate different "worlds," especially as a woman. The combination of young parenthood, family life, livelihood, career development, studies, and creativity forces me to find practical ways in which all of these blend together. So too, in my project, I combined a range of technologies, from traditional handmade crafts, which are slow-paced and produce unique items and are attributed to women (such as knitting and needlepoint), as well as fast-paced, synthetic technologies, which are a symbol of the new world (like laser cutting and 3D printing). The sets of clothing exist in the space between a warm embrace and a heavy and confining burden, which blend together to create a material and spatial language that can be misleading, but which tells my story accurately. Materials | raw wool, cotton threads, tetra fabric, handmade napkins (ready-made), beads, nylon, PLA, resin, hair bands, date palms. Working techniques | dry and wet felting, knitting, embroidery, bead weaving, rubber tying, 3D printing, laser cutting.
