For the Woolmark exhibition the participants were asked to highlight the special features of merino wool, such as stretch, lightness, and strength. For the video three playful settings focus each on one of the properties. Unlike material testing in industrial production this ‘Wool Testlab’ interacts with the material in a rather unusual way.
