• For the last two weeks I’ve been walking on clouds, since I received some pretty amazing graduation projects, straight out of the classes of 2013. I have a feeling that from next week you’ll be seeing a lot more Student Breaks
    Until then, let’s start with the first 2013 Graduate project of the year (drum roll!).
    This one comes to you from under the weaving hands of Michal Fierstein. Michal, who just graduated out of the Textile Design Department at the Shenkar College, is the one whom I’ve fallen for a while back…
    In her graduation project she researched the notion of dance as a language and the investigation of the spatial dimensions of movement by choreographer and textile artist Noa Eshkol.
    In her own minimal and sensitive way, Michal took this dance theory and transformed it into one of a kind set of wearable fabrics. And in case you are wondering, YES it took ages to come up with all of these. After all, Michal decided to take the long road and went ikat-ing. In other words, she dyed the threads in order to create a pattern before the weaving of the fabric even began. As I said, this girl is crazy good!
