Art design

Art design and textile art by Birgit Oestergaard aims to create a unique conceptual whole for the purpose emphasizing and highlighting beautiful architectural details in receptions, lobbies, offices, etc.. The characteristic textural expression creates texture and surfaces that naturally emphasizes tight, modern architecture. Major projects implemented in collaboration between client and architect starting with an analysis of the ideas and visions in order to present the best possible proposal. According to an article by Craig Elimeliah from 2006 design in a commercial sense is a very calculated and defined process.  A designer is similar to an engineer in that respect and must not only have an eye for color and style but must adhere to very intricate functional details that will meet the objectives of the project. The word design lends itself to a hint that someone has carefully created this object and much planning and thought has been executed to produce the imagery or materials used for the project. On the other hand, art is something completely separate—any good artist should convey a message or inspire an emotion it doesn't have to adhere to any specific rules, the artist is creating his own rules. Art is something that can elicit a single thought or feeling such as simplicity or strength, love or pain and the composition simply flows from the hand of the artist. The artist is free to express themselves in any medium and color scheme, using any number of methods to convey their message. No artist ever has to explain why they did something a certain way other than that this is what they felt would best portray the feeling or emotion or message

The materials used in her textile art may consist of non-textile materials such as rubber, metal, plastic etc. worked up in textile techniques. In a historic perspective art design consecutive has undergone a development most obviously shown during the industrial period where art quietly disappeared out of crafts. Modernism introduced the distinction between pure art and crafts - a distinction that still exists to this day, where the terms fiber art or textile art is usually understood as textile-based decorative objects, not intended for practical use
