This piece represents a hybrid form of design, involving textile art, sculpture and architecture. The work is a sound absorbing installation and a result of Bendixen PhD thesis on the possibilities of an acoustic textile design, in which a folded structure increases the sound absorbing property of the textile.

Danish artist, Cecilie Bendixen, was born in Copenhagen in 1975 and lives and works in Askov, South Jutland, Denmark. Bendixen graduated as an architect from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in 2005, followed by a PhD in 2013. Her practice blends architecture, craft, art, and science to explore and experiment with natural phenomena. Often made from textile and constructed by hand, Bendixen’s work takes the form of spatial installations that capture and express intangible dynamics, such as space, sound, light and wind. The interplay between materials, process, form and environment guides her poetic approach to design and making. Cecilie Bendixen has exhibited extensively internationally including at the World Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art, Madrid; Crafted Matter, Korea; Design Miami Basel and Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition, Copenhagen. She was nominated for the Nordic Textile Awards in 2017, and the same year she received the Bindesboell Medal. Her works are held in private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Danish Art Foundation; and the Galila Barzilaï-Hollander Collection, Brussels.
