Design started as a snapshot collection of found hair elastics. Surprisingly many of these elastics you can see in the streets. This is probably the most popular thing to loose.
For a few years I was taking a picture every time I noticed it. The silk scarves are documentation of such moments in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, New York, Venice and Vilnius (these places were chosen because of personal circumstances). Following objects were developed as a continuation with an intention to build a coherent toolbox to this project.
My work is related to memory, location and space. I use maps and try to investigate what could be the story of each place. By finding an item that could be seen (or not seen at all) and merging it with precious materials, immerse amount of time and work, I intend to perform awareness. In other words, I want to make the invisible visible.
'Elasticities' is an ongoing project initiated by Goda Gontyte,
