This project, consisting of four amoeba-shaped pillows stacked on top of each other, is a preliminary experimental piece testing the limits and pushing the boundaries of what defines a “pillow.” The project employed various sewing techniques, both by machine and by hand (using the Maker Hub’s resources), in the analysis of the potentials by which pillows can be expanded upon within the realm of soft sculpture. By providing an unconventional appearance and structure, this pillow causes the viewer/user to reconsider an object that is most often taken for granted.
