HAVE A SEAT | Mimi Jung

To highlight the multiple colours of yarn that comprise each Canvas colourway, the textile is deconstructed strand by strand to expose the warp. This partially deconstructed roll of Canvas is then used to upholster a series of connected seats. The intact portions of the textile create usable seating, while the deconstructed areas form an unusable ghostly seat. HAVE A SEAT is a commentary on the universally practised code among strangers of leaving an empty space between them whenever possible: it is an exploration of the desire for personal space in public settings.
