Pleats on Floor, 2019
ERW semi-bright steel tube, Digital-printed silk organza,
Heavy-weight fusible polyester interfacing, Galvanized steel rings, LED strip
Pleats on Floor i is to challenge the common perception of silk, a sheer and delicate material, by finding ways to stiffen it yet not changing its main characteristics. It is a juxtaposition of 2-dimensional (printed collages) and 3-dimensional texture (pleating). The pleats add dynamics and exaggerate the digital printed patterns.
