Although embroidery is restricted by the two-dimensional surface of representations, the artist seeks to take this type of what has been considered a handicraft beyond the boundaries of the genre and not merely present it as a piece of graphic art, but transfer it into the 3D format of mobile architecture. Maria Arendt extends this term, which today means a quickly erectable structure, to the concept of “textile architecture”. Memories are recorded on a "flash drive" and at the same time a mystic safeguard, they are simultaneously a sanctuary, scrolls, and prayer carpet. It is a screen protecting from the contingencies of the environment and at the same time a screen chronicling the artist’s impressions and emotions. It is both a fairground show booth and a tent giving shelter to a traveler from heat or cold. The elements of "architextile" Maria Arendt’s curtains have two sides. The front one is for the public while the reverse is the sacred one. It is not by chance that the artist shows the public the inner side of her works but is unable to decide for herself which side is more important. This may be a bifurcation point, where alternative history starts
