Metaphysical vs. IRL: Amalgamating Craft
In a collaboration seeking to explore the relationship between IRL craft and metaphysical craft, the Swedish designers Carl Herner and Emma Torsteinrud teamed up to create an intriguing three-part series of animated bags.
Emma explores fashion through the lens of meticulous materialistic research. Allowing dirt to join epoxy, mixing the un-expected with the domestic with the domestic, thus giving form to new structures, carried by our bodies. Through 3D scanning and digital modeling, Carl transforms, modifies, and re-constructs these surfaces.
In this new bodiless realm of the digital, the forms are freed from their physical imprisonment, and the materials are now allowed to grow further / taking on new forms, expanding, materializing, set remaining weightless.
