Siren Elise Dversnes Dahle: Between

 

 

Why do you design?
Since I was a child, I have always liked to create, and to make my own order in the chaos. I don’t consider myself a designer, but rather a material-based artist.

 

What is good design?

Good design is simple, but brilliant, moving borders and reflecting our community.

 

What is your ideas behind « Between »?

This work deals with the contrast between the heavy concrete material and the soft hand-painted textile. This creates an ambivalence: The textile is an important part of the work, but is at the same time squeezed together, and the hand-painted layers are hidden in the form. The concrete gives me the opportunity to “freeze” certain moments, as time remains in the sculpture as physical traces of the action.
