Dialogue between painted color and Ioncell
Ioncell®, developed by Aalto University in cooperation with the University of Helsinki, is a technique to produce cellulosic fibers for textile applications. In Aukeama, large shapes overlap, forming new hues in Helmi Liikanen’s painted textile. The painting’s abstract shapes can appear as a book spread, perhaps prompting us to turn a page towards a more sustainable future. The artwork is painted on Ioncell fabric using surplus dyes.
