“Swan Plaid” >&> “Destroyed Houndstooth Ocean Plaid”
Sharing some experimental digital textile “sketches” today, in honor of joining the @cfashionista [ #gettingsomewhere ] community ✨👏👏🕶 #collegefashionista 💅
The two images are collages of abstract photos I’d taken, warped [with techniques I’m brushing up on/learning in my emerging media class] and placed to emulate plaid patterns - plus a houndstooth template in “Destroyed Houndstooth Ocean Plaid.” The surreal, broken “plaids” are meant to be fun, sort of ugly AND pretty, and pay homage to the rebellious, anti-aesthetically pleasing spirit of the Dada and Post Modern movements #arthistory
Mostly, they’re fun little experiments that mash together a buuunch if things I’m interested in #abstractphotography #abstractart #academics #design #emergingmedia #fashion #textiles .
