‘Magnetism- the ability to attract, allure, fascinate, enchant and pull’
I am an artist/designer of a hybrid nature whose work crosses the contextual boundaries between sculpture, body adornment, fashion, costume and architectural installation.
I specialises in embroidery, my practice is focused on challenging the process of embroidery by combining scientific processes. Throughout the past year I have combined the scientific process of magnetism with embroidery. By experimenting with the forces of attraction and repulsion I have discovered new ways in which to embellish, attach and connect materials through magnetism.
I work with the human form, non-traditional textile materials and filmmaking to blur the boundaries between body, material and architecture.
‘When you take something scientific like magnetism which can be considered aesthetically cold and combine it with a craft like embroidery you can begin to create something beautiful and futuristic.’ Elnaz Yazdani 2014
