Telse Bus & Kim Berit Heppelmann - Invisible Threads

Jan 28, 2013 10:14PM

Telse Bus is often mistaken for a chef or caterer. Although food is the essential element of her work, she is not interested in serving culinary delights. Telse is an artist and her work consists of observing what happens when food is fed to a group of people. The outcome is never just a creative dish, but a social sculpture. “When you invite people to come together and eat at a table with plates and silverware, you will evoke an entirely different experience than when having them sit on the floor and eat with their hands,” she says. She sees a similar line of thinking in the work of her friend Kim Berit Heppelmann, who produces fashion but doesn’t see herself as a fashion designer. “Kim’s clothes are not meant to enhance the way people look and she is not interested in starting trends,” Telse told us. “Kim’s work all about creating feelings within the person who is wearing the clothes. It’s about creating an emotional sculpture.”
