Weaving Drawer

Bauhaus Dessau, 2014

A drawer and a weaving loom become one machine. The four drawers simultanously function as shafts of a loom. On one side one can look at the drawings in the drawers which depict blueprints and surreal scenes relating to that machine. On the other side one can weave a fabric. Depending on the order in which the drawers are pulled out, the structure of the fabric changes. The machine was first shown at Bauhaus Dessau.
