Here at the Slow Textiles Group we have been thinking about the importance of having a philosophy to your practice. Much like yoya or song, if there is a genre, a philosophy, a mindful context/style/framework to the work that you do, the thoughts that you develop and the sweat that you perspire, then the work has longevity and meaning.
If it doesn’t have this, then it fades. The impetus has nothing to hold it in place.
Our role here is to illuminate the philosophy. That is our work. That is why we have created the Slow Design School, a place to learn, discover and feel out the philosophy.
The beauty of Ann Demeulemeester’s video is in it’s simple truth.
