Arte textil. De lo tradicional a lo digital.

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

The accessories invite to reflect on the possibilities of digital tools in textile art creations. Through the designs an itinerary is configured from traditional techniques to an increasingly greater role of digital creations. Although 3d modeling and printing technology is used, reference to tradition is not lost.

INSPIRATION

Textile art is based on experimentation through the reinterpretation of traditional techniques such as crochet or through the research of new materials and digital fabrication possibilities. New technologies are a great creative research tool full of possibilities, however traditional techniques still play the mail role.

MATERIALS USED

Crochet and 3d printing techniques are used. 3d printing uses additive process where successive layers of white polyamide plastic are laid down to configure different volumes. Crochet technique is used with red wool to create organic textures.
