DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Felted jacket,connected to the wall. The garment is transformed from mobile to immobile. The jacket is wolly soft and inviting , but requires to be grounded. The blouse elements such as crochet cloth combined with grey wool fibers.

INSPIRATION

I was inspired by the Allegory of the cave of Plato. I thought about "home" in corrolation with the cave. On one hand, "home" provides us with protection and warmth but on the other hand it binds us to its rules and its relative truths.

MATERIALS USED

I used felt and knitting techniques .The felt technic is also related to the theme in its way of transforming the delicate fibers into massive material.
