"this is elna" fiber lighting installation from elna and ( e i ). ;-)
this was part of a night series documentation.
the series was shot to provide a better sense of the work, and the awe and warmth felt by being in its presence, while not actually being there.
hopefully more people will be able to experience this piece as we work on getting it into other spaces!

"Spinnerette". The source is one and the same.
This is one photo out of a photo set which depicts Milan feeding the knitting machine her energy and the yarn, and then creating from this the pieces that were used to construct Elna.

A peek at Elna.
Elna is a unification of fiber arts and lighting design from the collaboration of a fashion designer and product designer. She is an organism, with light symbolizing her life force and organs, the knitted yarn her skin, the pole structures her skeleton. She was constructed spontaneously and organically, seeming to reach and explore the space she inhabits.
During this summer we developed our knitted lighting creation while also constructing the final installation space. The space itself will be utilized as a studio/creative space later on.
After constructing her, we spent several days documenting our work. This documentation process ended with the deconstruction, and boxing up of this creation. We divided her into two boxes, one for each of us, and she will remain apart until she is called on to be constructed again. In the meantime we are both continuing our individual pursuits while sharing our summer experience with those we encounter. Perhaps you’ll see her again sometime soon ;-)
More images will follow!

working at the source of inspiration.
the area we are in currently is incredibly inspiring. in this instance we were able to step right into it, be enveloped by it, and work.
