MAGNETIC DRAWINGS

This textile collection is part of a short study about magnetism. Experimenting with iron powder and different magnets leads to a series of photogenic drawings. The field can be intensified or deformed by using more than one magnet. Alternate powers create new forms and help to make magnetism more seizable. Within a photogenic drawing the field almost appears to be some kind of magic occurrence.The collection uses the optical effects of magnetism in black to white contrasting exposures. Selected fragments and closeups of deformed fields are digitally transferred for textile media.
