The project is a hand felted vest having LED's and displays on its surface. The fabric of the vest is "folded" and the way one makes felt from wool ( the way of making layers and using patches) is for me a metaphor for "the fabric of space-time". To give the vest a purpose, i created the possibility of "adopting" an exoplanet. The idea of this was that if people relate to the wonders of the universe, they will be a little bit less likely to fight each other....(i am an optimistic artist).
