Kustaa Saksi’s Jacquard Weavings


Kustaa Saksi

How about some visu­al chaos for your Mon­day? The weav­ings of Kus­taa Sak­si should do the trick! The Finnish artist’s series, Hypnopom­pic was com­plet­ed on a jacquard loom, an  auto­mat­ic loom that makes it pos­si­ble to weave com­plex pat­terns.

The title of the series refers to a state of sen­so­ry con­fu­sion lead­ing out of sleep. Kustaa’s web­site fur­ther explains, writ­ing, “…the state of sleep gets mixed with the dream world into a sur­re­al real­i­ty. It is an excep­tion­al state of con­scious­ness, in which one may expe­ri­ence the pres­ence of, or see crea­tures or ani­mals, such as spi­ders, mon­keys and insects. Hypnopom­pic state has also been affil­i­at­ed with visu­al delu­sions caused by migraine.”
