Oobmab / Oobmab

Oobmab

Although there are various patterns in traditional bamboo-weaving, they all undergo a similar process: forming the base, the sides, and then finishing the top edge with a border. The work “Oobmab” uses bamboo strips to weave the wheel-like pattern. The original part of the work is that it uses insulated sleeves to be the border of the top edge, instead of traditional materials like bamboo or rattan strips. The wheel-like pattern of the work results in strips shown in different lengths, and these lines together form a sense of vitality and modernity. The light in “Oobmab” gives people the illusion of being in a bamboo grove, in tranquility.
