MA work

My printed textile designs have a distinctly unique innovative style, influenced by various musical genres and art moments. I am exploring the exciting new horizons and possibilities that the combination of print and projected moving image have for interior and exterior spaces. The hanging screenprinted fabric has reflective surfaces (foils, glitters, crystals), and the projections are designed to interact with these surfaces. Music brings the piece to life and is interactive, affecting the mood of the viewer. There is a wide range of applications for this work including decoration for music festivals, bars, clubs, restaurants and window displays.
