‘Throughout my degree I specialised in ‘Embroidery’, my practice was focused on challenging the process of embroidery by combining scientific processes. Throughout my third year I combined the scientific process of magnetism with embroidery. By experimenting with the forces of attraction and repulsion I have discovered new ways in which to embellish, attach and connect materials through magnetism.
This way of working resulted in my work having a hybrid nature that crossed boundaries between sculpture, body adornment, fashion, costume and architectural installations.’
‘I am inspired by ideas around the body of the future and future architectural spaces; I am keen to explore materials whilst thinking about future technology and science. I often work around the human form using non-traditional recycled textile materials and using filmmaking as a way to blur the boundaries between body, material and architecture.’
‘When you take something scientific like magnetism which can be considered aesthetically cold and combine it with a craft like embroidery you can begin to create something beautiful and futuristic.’ Elnaz Yazdani 2014
