A Common Thread: Tradition & Trend in Swedish Textiles  

A common thread project mock-up exhibition

Theodor Swanson

This project is a scaled mock-up of a satellite exhibition set in a public space intended to attract audiences to visit the permanent exhibition on Swedish Textiles at the American Swedish Historical Museum in South Philadelphia. I chose colors based on Swedish textiles. I incorporated elements of the weaving process such as the warp yarns, harnesses, heddles, beater, and warp beam to create a sculptural centerpiece for the exhibition.
