Innovating Malay weaving with 3D sculptural exploration and motifs.
Interwoven Motifs' is an innovative project that aims to explore the realm of three-dimensional sculptural weaving while preserving the traditional craft of weaving that has been an integral part of Malay culture for generations. Through a spontaneous combination and application of different weaving techniques, the project creates abstract forms that interact with an array of colours and Malay motifs, giving rise to unique and eye-catching sculptures. The project's approach goes beyond the conventional weaving practices and seeks to transcend the confines of weaving techniques rooted in Malay culture. The innovative approach aims to revitalise and preserve the weaving craft while coming up with new patterns using Malay motifs. Through 'Interwoven Motifs,' the project aims to underscore the significance of crafts in maintaining cultural heritage for future generations, and contribute to the preservation of this endangered field and its associated knowledge and skills.
