Glöm Bort Mig Nu

Handwoven on a Digital TC2 loom in linen, cotton, wool, and mohair.

“Glöm Bort mig nu” is a textile artwork that interprets the experience of being stuck in a negative loop through the video game The Sims and digital TC2 weaving. In the artwork, I created a sim character in the game where I chose not to fulfill any of her wishes, resulting in her being very unhappy.

The Sims is a video game where players can create their own simulated people, known as "sims," and control their lives by choosing their personalities§, careers, relationships, and homes.

I created the artwork by taking screenshots of my sim character in the game, processing them in an image editing program, and layering them with weave patterns that I then transferred to a TC2 loom and wove with wool, cotton, and mohair.
