When it comes to textiles, there is a vague border between art, craft and product. People often assume textiles have a specific function; that it will be used in some way and is not readily seen as art in the same way as works made of other materials. Its tactile nature separates textiles from other materials and evokes an urge to touch it. This work was created from those observations. ’Obrukbar’ is a woven blend of material which taken together makes it unuseable: wool, cotton, hemp and different kinds of plastic. Even though it has no practical use, it maintains the same characteristics as a piece of fabric. It can be draped, and the contrast between the materials creates a surface which can be understood without the need to be touched.
