This textile is inspired by the Nautilus shell. The perfect home is not a given place, it’s a place that grows (evolves) with you, like a snail shell or a nautilus shell. The textile object follows the lines of the chambers of the nautilus shell. I didn\'t do the exterior, but you can see how that is shaped by the chambers in the interior. As the nautilus grows, it adds a new chamber. I wanted to capture that, because as we go through life, we pass through stages (chambers) that we carry with us for the rest of our lives and that make us who we are. Nautilus is a marine mollusk that has a shell with 3-4 rooms at incubation and reaches up to 30 rooms, as an adult. Older rooms are in the center of the shell. As it grows, Nautilus adds a new room, larger, in which it moves.
