Research fusing fibres with laser technology
In 2015 Lomans started his ongoing collaboration with the University of Wales TSD. Working together with staff and students on a research with the GraphixScan laser engraver, enabling him to Fuse fibres with laser technology. The laser burns into polyester fabrics at high speed with a destructive force, layer upon layer. The melting fabric, with surprisingly organic structures, is like a new skin and results in a layered and almost fragile piece of art, a mesh as delicate as a spider’s web.
