Project Description

The Body: trichobothria is woven in a non-linear form of weaving or lace making called bobbin weave, and refers to the flesh as a sensory organ allowing us to sense our environment. Not unlike trichobothria, which are the hairs on a spider’s leg allowing it to sense its web, the system of web-like nerves in the body extend into our environment through touch. The pattern was a medical image of sensory receptors in the flesh; the weave takes on a physical quality that attempts to unify the sensorial body with the incorporeal body. Through the use of the weave and its visual connectivity to the surrounding architectural space, I hope to consider a body, which is at once becoming and diminishing.
