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.”
