What do you Feel?


What do you Feel? is a set of crochet objects that uses tactility to explore feelings. The crochet technique offers a variety of patterns and textures that can be subjectively interpreted, giving a richer way to describe emotions than the usual binary good/bad, happy/sad.
This set can be used during an open dialogue or alone, if you want to investigate your own feelings.


Working with the Korallen center for senses stimulation in Stockholm, I designed this project for children with speach impairments. However, as I shared my project with teachers and psychologists, I realized that more people could benefit from this project. Because expressing emotions is a complex issue that everyone experience.
This project was exhibited at Konstfack At the and of the year during Konstfack & Co in June 2019.
