Early 2020 I have the idea to hang collection Marinero on a wire near the Rijn Arnhem. Together with Gemeente Arnhem we are discussing about the possibilities to place the clothing wire underneath the water. I will need to get permission from Rijkswaterstaat to do this experiment. On 20-03-2019 I looked at the fields next to the Rijn that Gemeente Arnhem has pointed out to me as a possible location. During this time of year the water level of the Rijn (Rhine river) rises. The photo documentation underneath shows the effect of the water rise. After experiment 1 and 2 I will work on using sea based materials in combination with recycled plastic and shrinking yarns. I need the environment to let the designed woven blueprints take shape. Each prototype will be photographed before and after the water wire experiment. The entire Rijn experiment proces will be filmed and presented as a timelapse. You will see the whole collection hanging on a wire. The water of the Rijn will rise and the collection will stay underwater until the water level drops again. The material starts working underneath the water causing the shapes to deform organically. All garments have the same base blueprints but have a variety in materials and bindings. The reason why I am doing this is that I want nature to have a role in the shaping process of a design. The blueprints are inspired by elemental shapes. These patterns are also found in growing plants. This concept is translated into the blueprint design of Marinero. I will develop the technical drawings for the weaving patterns. They will be divided in several weaving techniques. I will base the design decisions on what I think that will have an effect later during the transformation process. What exactly will happen is not precisely known yet. But experiments 1 and 2 show an indication about what could happen. These two designs have the same blueprint but have such a diverse variety in how it responds to the environment and the human body. I expect the same variety to happen with the water wire. This page will be updated regularly until the water line experiment is completed.
