Serge Ecker is an artist specialized in photography and 3D Printing but always looking to expand his art into different media such as textiles. He is part of a Grid design in Luxemburg and travels the worls extensively to find his magnificient motifs.
In december he contacted ETIB and wanted to have a special series of motifs knitted with a hacked knitting machine. I was immedeately taken by his photography and 3D printing so I offered him a special technique of manual yarn colourway to not only capture the motif but also the beautiful colour range.
I find there is a lot of beauty in decay and abandonment and I hope I have captured this in the wall hangings I made for Serge.
Serge is taking part in an exhibit at “Bamhaus Expo – D’Welt vum Bam” as part of the “Night of Culture” in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxemburg from 2nd till 27th of May and will be exhibiting the first 3 wall hangings here. Title of his series is “Inertia of the Real”
The second 3 wall hangings will be exhibited in Paris as part of a design week.
Here are some pics from Bamhaus and my own photos with details.
Here is part of the development from motif to wall hanging:
