Felt

I remember that I admired Joseph Beyus installation that had thick rolls of felt. Images of felt tangled in my mind. I was going to use felt of similar fabric for tests and happened to find some pieces of carpet from the school dumpster. First tests I did were with this same floor carpet.

As a material felt is somehow awe-inspiring, it´s dense and warm and insulating in a suffocating way. At the same time the surface is organic, imperfect, natural. Some felts I´ve used have been from a proofing press and some designed for car soundproofing. Both have pros and cons and are good for different ideas.

I´m planning to use felt without prejudice and maybe someday exploit the possibility of laser cutting. I think that material such as felt should be used even more as a medium at our northern region.
