Kids can spend a lot of time looking at the clouds and imagining what the clouds look like. Adults are too busy with their life or their smartphone to take a moment and enjoy them and get inspired.
Nienke thinks it’s important for our imagination to get stimulated by raw images. Nowadays we see a lot of ‘perfect’ finished and photoshopped images, but she thinks raw images open the mind for new ideas. Therefore she designed WOLK, a series of textile cloths with cloud-like shapes and a lot of different textures. They challenge you to have a long and close look and feel some new inspiration.
WOLK……..in progress are handmade cloths, every one unique. By experimenting with a wide range of materials Nienke discovered that the combination of silk, textile ink and latex creates beautiful shapes and fine, subtle patterns.
