Winter Semester 2013 / 2014, BA/MA Textile- and Surface Design

A Romance of Many Dimensions

Everybody knows what >>Unkraut<< is botanically supposed to mean, but as there is no biological definition of it, it becomes clear that >>Unkraut<<

in its term is a social and personal judgement.

A judgement about(un)desirebility and (un)controllability.

How do we deal with phenomena we do not like – so strong, we cannot control? What is true tolerance, how does intolerance hide?

And also: what do words determine in our minds?

 

This work gives shape to it in different forms and layers.

The letter – the word – the text - became in form and

content a tool of ambivalence.

 

The >>Unkraut-project<< - under the artistic direction

of Hella Jongerius and Lucas Verweij - was devided

into three parts: an asthetic part, a machine part

and a metaphorical part.
