The Italian company Verardo invited four female designers to make a limited quantity of pieces “Rarity”. Pamela Lindgren was invited from Sweden, the collection was first showed in Milan 2007. Today’s high-tech level of living whit distinctive high-resolution images and manipulated nature, made me think of the mythic idea of the far east in the 18th century, the lacquer work, the Chinoiseries and the disciplined nature as in a bonsai tree.

My approach is to use today’s technique and reduce it into something that reminds of old craft techniques and methods, combined with today’s techniques.
By reducing the resolution of the images they become abstract, shape and contrast make the images more into a pattern. I have used the pattern and turned it into a digital drawing, which have been programmed into a machine that cuts out the images. In this way the low resolution images leaves a long lasting footprint of its appearing, a time document of today.
