Soft or Not
Soft or Not is an experimental project, consisting of five textiles. It explores textures from the main categories according to neuropsychology and cognitive science: smooth-rough and soft-hard. It investigates the change in intensity of sensation depending on the weaves and materials. It helps to create awareness of the components of the weaving technique in relation to the tactility of textiles. Different weaves, their scale and materials were tested to gain a deeper understanding of their relationship and the process of texture creation. The five pieces focus on the gradual change of textures, highlighted by the corresponding colour gradient.
