Dress in black satin silk with embroidery and applied bandslate Quing dynasty, Östasiatiska Museet Stockholm. (detail)
It started as a reproduction of a Chinese embroidery. 
The  four figures rendered in lines of thread forming a solid mass, the shiny surface with light moving across the constraints of the lines and the general shine and glamour of the embroidery led me to ABBA. I wanted to make a pattern which had similar qualities of light, lines and movement as the original embroidery.
