“Up Up and Away” is a highly personal, sensory textiles response to the disturbing phenomenon of ‘fever dreams’, which are confusing, disturbing dreams induced by illness that push the boundaries of reality, providing a different perspective of the world. Mainly characterised by extreme contrasts in shape and scale, bright colours, loud noises, and phobias, “Up Up & Away” aims to translate this disturbing phenomenon into an engaging and sensory knitted textiles collection, producing fabrics and art pieces suitable for interior application. Headache-inducing colour combinations work alongside curious knit structures to create fabrics that intrigue, confuse and invite touch and conversation. Using unconventional materials such as various monofilaments further support the exploration of unique knitting, and material testing pushes the project forwards, as yarns of various colours and textures are blended with monofilament to exploit the properties of these materials.
