Project B: Cocoon 


In her own words: Working with Ben was trully an honor. A challenge to pull of the shoot which were shot at MoMa and Guggenheim. Guggenheim really had strict protocol and it wsa a 6am shoot. We needed this colder tonality and very few people around us . Ben shoots very fast and the Cocoon knits were sculptures that could really do many things. But I wanted this aspect of Cocoon and hibernation. I had not yet made the big Cocoon which was always in the forefront of my mind. There was a surreal approach to this project and felt that it was a nice evolution from metamorphosis where you saw Ben’s visual artistic abilities as well as my textile design.
