I am interested in generative patterns, randomness and woven structures. This is a collection of my work.

Woven Sounds is my master's thesis work about designing woven acoustic curtains. The work combines both the technical work of designing functional textiles, and the visual pattern design with the same concept of sound.
Two different sketching mediums were used: digital sound responsive computer sketching and material cymatics sketching. Played sounds generated the visuals independently through either a material medium or an algorithm capturing the essence of that particular sound. The sound concept appears in the prototype fabrics both as woven and digitally printed patterns and as structural inspirations.
