I started with this project as aim to translate my written text on nudity to a more physical form. I had four poems connected to the theme nudity from my project Undressing Innocence: Shedding, Undressing, Nude modelling and Naked as we came.
These liberating poems were meant to be experienced and felt close to oneself. I thus wanted to keep close to the physical body and so decided to make my words into scarves. To me it was important to weave the scarves, as I weave with my words. Each word and notion closely connected and intertwined to the next. I decided to make more than one version seeing that each person interprets texts, ideas and emotions differently. I made a loosely hand felted wool scarf evoking the warm and comforting sensation of flesh. A fragile transparent silk to show that thoughts and feelings are translucent and delicate just as the subject matter itself and also a dense white cotton scarf to resemble the flow of words on paper and the strength it can represent.
