MA work

How do you create textiles which mean something to someone? My project attempts to address the lack of context that often affects the medium. Rather than create generic fabrics, I use high-resolution digital photography and digital printing techniques to appropriate and reinterpret existing textiles into new forms. In this way, objects can be made that have new and different relationships with the wearer. Much of my work is concerned with personal attachment, experience, history, aging, decay and growth. For more work, please see my website.
