The Textured Self, a project by multidisciplinary designer Sonja Bäumel, takes the bacteria membrane from individual skin and the surrounding environment, and turns it into a hand-knitted and crocheted silhouette.
Finished toile of realisation project. I had to hand sew each piece together to create this effect. I have transferred the markings onto pattern paper so I can recreate this on my final fabric. I am pleased with the outcome but I would like more volume. The final piece will be covered in shobori so that will add the extra shape I want.
