Night Sky – Deep Sea | A non-active wearable paper sculpture made from handwritten notes of a Japanese sake brewery. One of my basic interests is the further processing of historical material which is mostly well over 100 years old. The colouring of the paper with natural dyes is an important concern for me. The herbal method with indigo goes back to a nearly 2000 year old Japanese technique called Shibori. On the Tōkaidō trade route, dyeing developed into a considerable industry over the centuries and the different techniques of shibori became an art form in their own right. The sculptural object transforms the writings on its envelope into an impression of a clear night sky or the deep sea. Its shape is meant to suggest the movement of an airship in this night sky or a submarine in the sea, the central fan its propulsion in the respective element. In both interpretations, the golden trims represent the cartographic recording by man.
