Fay McCaul at Designersblcok London 2010

August 19, 2010

My work is based around the idea of using traditional techniques with unconventional materials, allowing the materials to look and behave differently than expected.

I am inspired by reflection and refraction of light. The interactive behaviour of a material that shimmers and reflects as you move around it is something that I bring into my work. With the use of lighting technologies and contemporary materials I am pushing knitting into new realms of possibility. I create installations and fabrics that “play with light” and provide a unique and magical form of decoration for interior and exterior use. Pieces that appear one way in daylight and then transform in the darkness.
