New Designer – Chrysanthi Katsilouli
Chrysanthi’s work is informed by her research into the properties of light and space, including the geometry of light and refraction effects. Based on the instinctive process of spatial awareness, it’s an investigation into the perception of space in natural and manmade environments. Her core idea, that space doesn’t always have to be described in visual terms – some environments are an open expanse without visual marks – has led her to find ways to interpret and analyse this notion in her printed textiles.
Chrysanthi’s participation in New Designers allowed her to gain positive feedback and promising contacts. “It was a great experience and an excellent opportunity to see and to be seen. I talked about my work to other graduates and I listened to their stories,” she says.
During the exhibition, Chrysanthi was awarded the Clothworker’s Company Associate prize. Not only was this a great honour, but it was also accompanied by a financial reward that will be a substantial help in planning her next project. Her plans include travelling, gaining experience through internships, collaborating with people in other disciplines and continuing to learn and evolve as a designer.
