GHOST OF WEAVING: A MEDITATION OF PATTERNS

Written by Lomme, Freek
The Ghost of Weaving explores the visual poetry that is released within the woven patterns ambivalence between fixation by rule and the dynamics of life, and on the fracture of materialistic realism and the limits of the power that we hold in our hands. The project and final book asks, As productive mastery is channelled through ever more abstract processes, digital tools, and semi-finished particles, have we begun to lose touch with the fundamentals of the pattern produced? With this delightfully creative and multi- dimensional artist book, sectioned into multiple books and Chinese foldouts, we take a step back into the mastery of patterns in craft. We will balance this by looking back into the history of ideas involving patterns as visual motives to culture, and dive into our experiences of them. Contributing artists and designers are elisa van Joolen, esther Stocker, Hansje van Halem, Tracy Widdess, Har Sanders, Koen Taselaar, Maria Hedlund, Sigrid Calon, and Timon van de Hijden.The textures of our culture are reflected within the patterns we produce. Sometimes the surface that hosts the pattern is more slippery than imagined, or the pattern appears to have been too unstable in the first place. As the ruler is held exclusively in the hands of humankind, why then is the pattern so tempting and why do we give into it time and time again?
