tape it     selection of diploma textile design, 2002 


Domino effects or chain reactions have been the method to create an inspiring collection, a fund of ideas with drafts, cloths, pictures, clothes, accessories and interiors presented in their various stages of development.
The adhesive tape marks my diploma collection.

I developed a new technique to make clothes seamless and reversible by using several different adhesive textile tapes.

Plissée Object used as scarf or photo-montage for fashion ideas: accessory 40 x 60 cm silkscreen on cotton, pleated with painter's masking tape


 

Part of the diploma collection were also paintings: acrylic- and spray-paint on wood, each 25 x 47 cm

Beige painter's masking tape stuck directly on the window. The several layers change the aspect and the effect of the pattern according to the changing of the light situation outside and inside the room. In sunshine, the shadow is displayed all over the room and creates a nice atmosphere.

I like it, because everybody can do it, it is cheap and effective! I want to animate people to improvise in their everyday environment, and be creative themselves, .... this is one way.



My idea to create patterns with simple painters masking tape on the windows was published in the first edition of 'Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture'.

The same idea used with coloured paper- and textile tapes. Stuck together on both sides, used as a room divider or curtain, also changing its colour and pattern according to the light conditions.
