|"On first glance, Thea Bjerg’s pleated scarves appear to be textile sculptures. Once they are physically held, however, the artistic folds and layers begin to move fluidly. |
Masterfully folded, the scarves straddle the lines between accessories, textiles, and fashion.
Thea Bjerg’s works are rooted in the tradition of Danish textile art. Using state-of-the-art techniques such as laser-cutting and ultrasonics, she is able to create diaphanous, sensuous accessories. "- www.werft11.com/en/persons/thea-bjerg.htm

Lines made by creasing and folding give these delicate fabrics rigidity. However, the fabric does not become so rigid that it is unable to "move". I'm inspired by these pieces because of their ability to not only imply movement in a static image through series of lines/vectors, but also one can imagine the feeling of movement when wearing one of The Bjerg's pieces.
