NESTING WITH HABITS - A MORNING ROUTINE

 

A scent oriented art piece

 

 

”Hur förvandlar man bostad till ett hem? Först och främst genom att långsamt skapa en väv av trygga vanor.” – A quote from the book När inget särskilt händer

 

 

Safety. To dress, wash, brush, water boiling, the television is running as a noise in the background.

An everyday routine goes on automatically. It is the routines that keep the everyday life in control and makes it the everyday life. The morning routines are the most important in our start-up for the day. Just because, we know what we should do. It feels safe.

With my work I want to explore the everyday, see what has become a routine and enhance it. Building routines is to build a home wherever you are. I have created a home for my routines by gently sew materials from my morning routines in the shirt I slept in during the night. Hair, and fur of animals, is what holds together the home. For every hair I sew around the materials, the more they are united and become one whole. It will be a safe place, just like my home.
