City Carpet

During my Graduation period at Design Academy Eindhoven, I practised to generate a city carpet out of a pictured grid. I attempted to picture the city's architectural details, and observed the city by biking and walking different routes, varying from the center of the city to the suburbs. The same methods are used in the cities of Rotterdam and Utrecht. The other side of the project, was a study in carpets and tapestry, I became more familiar with textiles and at the end the pictures where woven in to this carpet. The layout of the grid, starts in the city center where also the pictures of the city center are positioned. And it spreads to the suburbs at the edges of the carpet. Other important things that I have learned during this period, are the possibilities of textiles and the proces to produce photo-woven tapestry for interior-design.
