Wool weaving in Palestine has a long history and strong connection with the cultural identity of the Levine region. Today, it is mostly perceived as a left behind heritage. this proposal is framing an artistic practice in the Palestinian cultural scene. The formulation of local knowledge to contemporary one emerged in an attempt to up-cycle the leftover sheep wool, which was labeled as an eco-friendly local practice and proposed a sustainability cycle to the wool fabric industry. From another perspective, our existence as humans in this cycle interferes with the ecological system itself. In this context, the deconstruction dialogue between nature and culture is highly emphasized. As architecture and design perceive deconstruction as a “mode of questioning”, this artwork contributes to the dialogue and questions the process of wool weaving.
Deconstructing weaving is a dismantling process of wool weaving techniques and an attempt towards developing a technique with a minimal human role.
