Knitted silence tapestry experience at Direktoren Haus Berlin // 2011
Gallery DIREKTORENHAUS in Berlin invited Signe Emdal to create one of her knitted silence tapestry experiments. Transforming the identity of a room with knitted textiles. Working around Ward & the glass box.
Midt 19th century: Nathaniel Ward (a victorian gentleman) invents a transportable glass box for exotic plants to stay alive during transport from the far East. The glass box allows the european upper class to build miniature jungles. A trend starts with especially Ferns & palm-tree plants. Everybody wants an indoor glass-cabinet with exotic plants. The glass-box changes everything!
