On Textile Farming: Living in a Prototype

This publication illustrates my journey over the past four years of artistic research within the ArcInTex European Training Network. This journey started with a search for textile structures that adapt and respond to their environment, led to me studying the interactions between seedlings and textiles and resulted in me living in a prototype house in the Swedish forest in order to explore the spaces in between the inside and the outside. The diary presented here, containing three short stories, describes the magical subtle experiences that one has when conducting observational studies, which are difficult to describe in a factual way.
