WE MAKE CARPETS does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet. The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet. But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product.
LED Carpet is the first permanent carpet by WE MAKE CARPETS. Next to its permanency it is also interactive. Controlled by an Ipad the audience can control 12.000 individual LED’s by hand, creating their own pattern. LED Carpet is the first step by WE MAKE CARPETS creating more permanent installations with the same vision and concepts as the installations before.
