Tuft Rome
Macro Museum of Contemporary Art, 2013

Concept for an inhabitable installation / not realized

Primary fabric on which the wool is tufted can be three dimensionally deformed. Tufted primary fabric is shaped by either straining upper and lower surfaces apart one another or bringing them together on alternate points. After deformation the wool is fixed onto the fabric with several layers of liquid latex and covered by a secondary fabric on the back side. The result is a pair of permanent yet soft and pliant undulating surfaces forming a carnal levitating cave.
