MATERIAL EXPLORATIONS DURING NAHR IN VAL TALEGGIO, BERGAMO,ITALY

In accordance with my current research, the proposal for Nature, Art and Habitat Residency revolved around researching the symbiotic relationships existent in the Woods of Val Taleggio. The aim was to acquire some insight into how I could adapt this model to the problem of air pollution in the domestic space.

This 4-week residency was dedicated towards exploring and understanding the good functioning of the Woods, followed by some theoretical research and material explorations. The goal was to generate ways of translating the symbiotic behavior into health beneficial textiles for the home.

 Through design experiments I directly incorporated the nature of Val Taleggio into the creative work.
