Folding Sky Collection No. 03 MauveDarkSand from Rug Star
Folding Sky No. 03 is a perfect marriage of analogue, digital, and material manipulation.
The Folding Sky Collection came about through a merging of analogue and digital means. First, photographs of the sky were taken outside of Rug Star's Berlin office. These photographs were printed on paper, which was then folded in various ways to crease the image. These sheets were then scanned and digital manipulation of the colors began. The unexpected motion and emotional engagement that resonated is at the heart of what sets Rug Star apart. They always leave room for impulsive miricles within the creative process.
Folding Sky No. 03 has always reminded me of Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending Staircase (No. 02) personally. The Cubist elements within the rug suggests movement and set this rug apart as definite art for the fifth wall of a room.
Rug Star's Nepalese produced rugs incorporate a unique three-warps system in to each knot, which allows for not only dynamic ranges of colors being possible, but also precision control of material introduction and interplay while still on the loom. The resulting abrash (the range of subtle tones within one color) unique to this method, allow the full vision of Jürgen's creative vision to come to life in his designs.
