SUMMARY

Neps are separated, from a woolen, from a sweater, from the body of someone, and someone is separated and deprived of warmth. I collected the wool fabrics from my family and friends. The personal traces carried on the fabrics are dismantled and reconstructed to open up a collective and connected space. Hereafter, the fabrics rub the skin, generates warmth which transmit via the body and fabrics. Fabrics start to pill and neps start to appear, carrying the warmth, interweaving with one another, inadvertently.
