“Between hard and soft” is how German artist Elisa Strozyk describes her wooden textile project. Using small, thin wooden pieces, Strozyk connects triangular elements using a textile infrastructure. Though it is not seen, the textile portion is essential to a joinery that permits movement.
Combining small repetitive shapes, these pieces reference both quilting and mosaics. The artist explains, “Depending on the geometry and size of the tiles each design shows a different behavior regarding flexibility and mobility.”
