Twist

This installation made of 15 km of white wool took place in Langenthal's Markthalle for a special event, the Design Prize Switzerland, which is held every two years. Twist was originally conceived for the exhibition "Fabric of light" commissioned by Lantal, a leader in the design, production, and distribution of textiles and services for the international community of aircraft, bus, railway, and cruise ship operators.
The main inspiration comes from the fascinating machines used in Lantal's factories to assemble all of their threads together to make one single piece of fabric. Twist intends to put in light this hidden process of fabrication, with hundreds of strings all across a room with video projection giving them motion.

In collaboration with Mathieu Rivier and Jöelle Aeschlimann.
