Dialogues between textile and light are explored by the Danish textile artist, Cecilie Bendixen, in her sculptural textile pendant Much (2016), in which she creates an interesting interaction between form, light, shadow and acoustics. The textile is sound absorbing and when the abundant amount of textile is folded, its acoustic properties are enhanced. At the same time, its specific stiff texture gives birth to a baroque, spatial form - an amorphic structure of material contracted by threads – which, lit from within, creates a suggestive, shimmering presence.
