We Make Carpets - Site-Specific Work
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
We Make Carpets emerged in 2009 through the collaboration of Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten, and Bob Waardenburg. The three have backgrounds in art and design, and their practice is informed by a great appreciation for form and colour, as well as design simplicity. This monograph presents works they have produced since 2014, with 28 site-specific projects in which no object is off limits. Stationary items, foodstuffs, toys, party decorations, hardware, bricks, straws, gravel, and more are used to create spectacular, large-scale patterned surfaces. Their choice to work with mass-produced objects rather than high-end design materials adds tension to the complex decorations.
