The city of Enschede has started a project about the history of the city centre and invited me to design a concept for an artwork in public space. My idea is to make a light installation on a building where in the past the biggest textile factory of the Netherlands was located. Here are some experiments and results of my first research. My idea is to create a fragile image of the factory which visually reminds of woven fabric.
For the speed assignment by our guest teacher Kees de Groot I am doing research about the element silver. It silver is used in modern technology for instance because it is antibacterial.

Here is are some scetch images I want to use for illustrating my ideas.
