Resumo

O objetivo desta pesquisa foi criar textos de museus e materiais educacionais para a seção têxtil de uma grande exposição de um museu universitário de um ano, focada em explorar a cultura e a estética japonesas por meio de obras de arte aplicada e fina. Poucas informações sobre os têxteis estavam disponíveis. Uma amostra do histórico quimono japonês, yukata e obi, em uma coleção universitária foi examinada usando métodos de pesquisa em cultura material e semiótica. Os motivos presentes nos têxteis foram identificados e explorados pela forma como eles representam valores relevantes para as práticas culturais japonesas ao longo do tempo. Em particular, os motivos foram explorados por sua atração notável pelos valores religiosos e
culturais de uma sociedade. Os motivos eram predominantemente botânicos, enfatizando o
respeito pela natureza na cultura japonesa. Outras categorias de motivos presentes incluem elementos geométricos, animais/insetos, objetos culturais/cotidianos e motivos de paisagem. Foram identificados 104 motivos individuais. Os significados simbólicos foram examinados e
interpretados juntamente com materiais, cores e técnicas atuais. O uso de métodos de pesquisa
em cultura e semiótica de materiais para análise de têxteis japoneses é mapeado neste estudo.
