bruises and burns

FUW_Bruises and Burns


A catalog of material studies, developed during the work on "Cocoon" in search for new aesthetic and functional qualities.
Different types of leather were punched, scribed, embossed with heated metal wires and lattices, deep-drawn, tattooed by hand and with a sewing machine, burned, or laminated with synthetic resin. This resulted in different flexibilities, new surface structures and qualities, changed draping properties of the material and stiffening of certain surface areas.
