These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.

Striking body adornment, really eye catching and inspiring. Re-blogged from Alexandros Nikolis Pinterest board body adornment.

New Project!

Untitled-1

Started a new project, just to keep the grey-cells moving really! So I’m looking into armour and structure probably going to make a little set of body adornments, most likely using constructed textiles.

A darker body of colour

design 1 page 2

The image I took from my research to experiment with darker colours, is a piece Harvey Nichols, commissioned Heatherwick studio to produce an installation to celebrate London Fashion Week 1997. I have fallen in love with the work this company produces, one of their more recent pieces being the Olympic Cauldron, for the London 2012 games, if you are unfamiliar with their work check it out it’s amazing.

So using an image of the piece called Autumn Intrusion to experiment with colours on the body, also including design specs of the garment, which can be altered to the wearers’ personal tastes.

Colour on the body

design 2 page 1 blue

Using an image from my research, this one taken from the art exhibition Beyond Infinity by Serge Salat and overlaying a fashion design to experiment with colours, also including design specs of the garment, to show where it can be changed from a “all-in-one” to button up sleeves, which gives the wearer the option to change how this outfit could look depending on their personal style.

New developments.

Beyond infinity

beyondinfinity01beyondinfinity03

‘Beyond infinity’ was a 2011, multi-sensory exhibition by the french artist Serge Salat, using mirrors, light, music, and art within architecture to change visitors’ perceptions of space. This was a large exhibition measuring 12.45 by 10.8 meters at a height of 3.8 meters, the main structure a steel infrastructure with a series of honeycomb aluminium panels covered in mirrors. Internally the space utilises spatial techniques traditional of Suzhou gardens as a means to send the visitor on a ‘mystical journey’. Painted wooden grids and steps add additional structure.

 

Within the installation, there is music playing, the lighting changes as visitors move throughout the various spaces whose dimensions are almost never ending as a result of the reflections cast by the mirrors helped by the lighting which changes from ultraviolet blue to white, offering a complete cycle that recreates day and night.

Quick Doodle

It’s been a while since I have done a paint on the end of a stick, quick pen and paint doodle – it shows! drawn as further research into Iris van Herpen and the use of shapes and adornment on the body.

Manipulating shape and form

Closer look into Iris van Herpens’ work, looking at shapes on the body and how these can be manipulated with different uses of scale and texture, page taken from my sketchbook.

Feathered reflections

Simple pen drawings and other images incorporating  different types of feathers and other parts of my research, which can easily be manipulated into quirky and abstract textiles prints to be used as digital prints to be incorporated into my  collection for EABurns.
