About The Artwork

Nightswimming is inspired by swimming in a lake with moonlight. It's woven with four colours of satin ribbon (taupe, silver, blue and indigo) attached to a wooden frame. When you walk pass the artwork, it changes because of the light shining on the material. Also during the day it changes. The material has a warm, deep and rich feel to it. This piece is 135 x 67,5 cm and 2,7 thick. You can hang it on the frame, metal hook or with the metal wire attached at the back.

When I was graduating at the Design Academy Eindhoven, one of my projects was called connecting chairs. Three different combinations of two chairs attached to one another as a visualization of connecting people. During the design process I was searching for the right ma-terial to connect these chairs. I tried ribbon. I had two wooden frames (the 'seats') which I wanted to connect with ribbon. I had different colors, materials and sizes and put them all together. It looked really nice but I couldn't use it. It was too weak for a seat and it was so nice it grabbed all the attention and the concept of the chairs got lost. I ended up with plain felted wool. The 'failed seats' were quite nice, so I hung them on my wall as a piece of art. And that's how the story begins. First I made the 'Connecting Collection', two frames attached to another like the 'failed seats'. Then I made the first piece that become part of the ' Drop Collection', one frame with one longer ribbon so it 'dropped'. This is filled with pieces of ribbon. Later one the 'Nature Collection' was born, inspired by the colors and lines of nature like the sky. Then I found out that you can get a 3D effect when you work with ribbons in fol-lowing widths, even when you work with only one color, because of the light shining on it. The 'Illusion Collection' became the fourth collection.
