A project about colourscheme and patern repetition implemented by weaving, printing and knitting. Each year freight ships loose around ten thousand containers in the sea. The oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer is not only following the path of chinese plastic ducks. His flotsam-research helps tracking the current of the sea.
In this project the focus was being set upon the traces of the floating water, and the marks being left behind by it. All the storms, waves and currents have had an influence on the pieces in this long period of time. They are being sanded, bleached, crushed, scratched and matted. Upon their surfaces a thin film will develop. The colourscheme of the objects as well as the design of the patterns represent this process of altering in the fabrics as well.
