Chairs as domestic objects in our bedrooms are often used as a stand to hang our textiles on. Through this casual use the chair is transformed from a standard functional chair into a character-object that wears clothes. Through dressing a broken chair with a woven rice textile, the notion of the chairs uselessness is exaggerated to give this unfunctional-as-chair object a character. The textile possesses and protects the chair, covering its body like clothes emphasizing but also hiding its uselessness as a chair. The textile is cast with a soft skin of rice vermicelli soaked and dried over the chair becoming armor, skin and echo.
