As an extension of the project Interrogative Pattern – Text(ile) Weave, Möller collaborated with the designer Dinu Bodiciu for the production of a series of headgears informed by

the Samsui women headscarf. Each work in the installation is a reconfiguration of the original source. Through the use of unconventional techniques and materials, the headgears are invested with a sculptural quality – they operate on the interface of art and design, and become cultural materials of a history that is rewritten and reimagined .
