Abstract: The exhibit 13in1 is an example of my PhD research work which aims to answer the following research question: What does it mean to explore time and changing expression, in the form of continuous movement as an integral part of textile design? The aim is to create time-based textiles, which examine the aesthetics of movement as a fourth-dimensional element in textile design. Light, in relation to textile structure is the main medium of the investigation.

The exhibit is part of a series of experiments, named rhythm exercise, which explore new ways of designing with time-based parameters to create dynamic light-emitting textile structures. This series of experiments focuses on the creation of light sequences, which explore how different expressions of movement, rhythm, tempo, play and pause create dynamic tensions.
