A lot of Marie Molterer’s work is process based, an outcome of in situ experimentation with shape and colour. This, often, is the starting point of collaborative practices in her work and creative workshops. Green Play Scarf (2020) is the outcome of suchlike processes. This textile piece is designed by a set of ‘Tangram’ puzzle tiles, arranged in a series of play and visual storytelling workshops with children ongoing since 2012.
