Abstract [en]

The project investigates translations of vernacular textile technics in the craft of sailmaking to ornamental imprints embedded in a building, a sailmaking loft in the town of Simrishamn in the southern part of Sweden. The seam, the fold and the weave interpreted and transformed in material and with digital tools as the cnc-mill become new layers in the otherwise pragmatic world of a functional workshop.
