USP Course work: Snow LED-skirt
 
The piece consists of a crocheted skirt and ring which both contain one side of a magnetic switch that will activate LED-s in the skirt only in case of both sides united.
 
The work represents snow characteristics. On visual side its ability to shine in the dark with some light pointed to it and the shape of snowflake. On conceptual side it shows that miracles start to happen when two separate parts come together (snowman, houses, slides?!) and protection that both snow and garment provide to its wearer.
