research interests at the V&A

Arianna Nicoletti © Chiara Bonetti “My residency with the Goethe-Institut at V&A will focus on the circular economy for textiles. I am interested in exploring and analysing works in the 'Fashioned from Nature exhibition' linked to recycling technologies, closed-loop bio fibres and upcycling design. Taking some of the exhibition’s revolutionary examples as a starting point, such as the textiles by Bolth Threads and Orange Fiber, I will investigate other related pieces in the museum’s collections. The ongoing output of my research will be a digital and analogue 3D map of circular fashion innovation, highlighting common variables and their disruption grades”.
