I See A Voice, 2023
During Sam Belinfante’s residency with fabric manufacturers Panaz, he investigated Moire patterns and the optical effects induced through the movements of sheer fabrics. These textiles have the capacity to conjure illusion and narrative; to speak through, and from within, the warp and weft.
I See a Voice was been created using Connect sheer fabrics from the Panaz range, usually used at windows to create privacy or zoned areas. The manufacturer facilitated visits to textile mill partners, including a night sound recording at DHJ Weisters, capturing the moment each loom was turned off at a shift’s end.
