Motif Sampler

Geometric and floral motives are woven into traditional textiles as symbols of purity, nobility and luck (Papa, 100 de stergare romanesti, ICEM Tulcea). The object made of manually fret perspex deconstructs such a motive, offering a sense of tridimensional depth by recreating the symbol layer by layer.

It thus can be be recreated anytime, even on the weaving loom for instance. It functions as a sampler, as a motive archive and a memory keepsake.
