Two Stripe Shite
The people and places we grow up with have a massive impact on who we are as people. They not only shape our personalities and outlook on life but they form the prism through which we see the world.
Growing up on a council estate in East Glasgow through the late nineties and early two thousands I never really understood the way the world worked beyond my community. Moving to London to undertake this course has allowed me to view my life and my home from the outside. At times it has left me sad, disappointed and angry. However at the end of the day I always feel proud to call myself a Weegie.
Two Stripe Shite is a product of these feelings. Delicate and precious textiles broken up by the addition of rough nontraditional materials. This Opposition creates an unusual materiality and handle.
