In this large wall-­hanging experiment, traditional crafts, weaving techniques and processes are re-interpreted: a simple wooden frame, together with long, yellow fabric leashes shape the core of the home-build loom.

With inverted knots and simplistic approaches, Ratzer has created a piece that is constantly changing depending on use, space and placement. RYA can be used to seperate a space or to influence the atmosphere with the warmth quality textiles have to offer. The experience of the back side adds another facette to it as well as its acoustic intervention.
Moreover, its three dimensional qualities provide a unique kind of rythm, movement and texturality, which highly interact with the space it occupies.
