" I TRANSLATE VISUAL TEMPERATURES "
Signe Emdal´s work combines a poets mind with the hands of a gardener, scanning nature with her sensitive eyesight and translating the informations into layers of landscape-like fiber constructions, scarves, rugs, tapestries, blankets & photography, through a variety of textile machinery, raw yarns, cameras and techniques.
EMDAL was founded in 2007 as a place for Signe to research profound substance, visual temperatures and natural light with digital machinery. She is on a silent mission to shine light on the incredible nature that keeps us all alive.
It may sound pretty abstract, - yet, the physical work from Signes hands always radiates that familiar feeling of comfort while spending time in nature.
Born in 1979 in Copenhagen, Signe Emdal is educated from Design School Kolding (DK) in 2007 with additional apprenticeship at a local textile manufactor in the danish countryside. She worked widely across the design, fashion & art scene and is currently based in Copenhagen with her textile atelier.
The online shop will soon be ready for you to buy Signe´s handmade textiles direct from the atelier.
TEXTILE ATELIER EMDAL
Based in Copenhagen next to the eastern sea, Signe Emdal creates her fiber art and textiles with industrial vintage textile machinery, raw natural yarns and experienced wise hands in her atelier.
The process is slow and meditative with all digital devices carefully on mute during the making. Techniques are constantly refined to allow ongoing innovation and a feeling of profound substance.
Additionally to her own machinery, Signe is working with high tech Jacquard looms at the Textile museum in Tilburg and also creating artworks for handmade RUGS.
