Since my final exam at the Rietveldacademie I am working on skirts.

I believe that the world around me starts at my navel and ends somewhere at the other side of the globe. A long skirt represents my surroundings. After weaving the fabric I finish the surface with a steelbrush. By brushing the backside shows on the front, both layers intermingle, as landscapes.

The skirts carry names like Mongolia, Bambam (Congo), Mirzapur and Fool’s Gold.
