Class of 2021 Exhibition
Final Undergraduate Project (SP4b)
Inspired by Wabi Sabi, I set out to exacerbate and immortalise the imperfections of found materials by embellishing their visual traces, which most would opt to disguise, and accentuating the personality embedded within the snags and stains of each fabric. The resulting forms strike a fragile equilibrium between dilapidation and rejuvenation – evoking an obscured sense of familiarity within the viewer. By showcasing these peculiarities, I seek to emulate this strange sense, and invite the viewer to speculate for themselves the journey each fabric has undergone to arrive in its current state.
