WHATS THE POINT???

For our first self directed project I chose to look into the idea of skin and decay,this was a process that I came across by looking at the texture of latex from my last project and comparing it to skin, from this I was inspired to look into scientific petri dishes under the microscope.

JEREMY SCOTT : MOSCHINO

Ever since I was younger Jeremy Scott has always been a main focus and inspiration to me and in fashion and textiles. 

I respect and love the way he thinks outside the box and takes simple garments but allows the textile to vary in such creative and change the way the garment is interpreted all together. His textiles are so inviting and entertaining and her changed the way I view fashion by bringing in a extravagant and creative side.

JEFF KOONS 

 

Today I went to the Jeff Koons exhibition at the Newport Street gallery. 

I wasn't sure what to expect from this exhibition as I had heard good and bad reviews from fellow classmates therefore I was intrigued to look around. When we got there we were immersed in colour and different textual identities. 

The exhibition as a whole was small but fulfilling my favourite piece was a metal sculpture of a balloon animal, the piece took up two stories of the gallery and was mesmerising as the texture of the piece was interesting as it looked like it was made of balloon, it was also reflective which added to the element of the piece. 

Upstairs I also really liked a model made of different colours of play dough, it was stacked up in a rough way yet the piece was beautiful to me, I really respected the way it had been displayed and i liked the choice of colours and the way they complimented each other and to whom they were next to in the pile. 

The exhibition itself to me was loud, mad and crazy, It was short and sweet but this is what I believe was good about it, you weren't forced to try and remember 30 different pieces instead you knew what was good by the simplicity of what was there and the way the pieces themselves were so bold.

ROTTINGDEAN BAZZAR

Rottingdean Bazaar is the creative genius of two Central Saint Martins graduates, James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks who studied print and knitwear.

The combine the weird and wonderful to create garments out of the usual 'ready to wear' titles, yet grab the attention and have captured the fun and creativity as well as beauty within fashion through printing in these diverse ways.

They use items such as condoms, underwear, slippers and petals, for example, to print own garments first hand and through this inject their own individual style and creativity.

YVES KLEIN

 

YVES KLEIN "The imagination id the vehicle of sensibility, transported by the imagination, we attain life, life itself, which is absolute art".

 

During my research recently into the body and printing and through this creating memories rather than simply taking a photograph I stumbled across Yves Klein who was a french artist who used the body to paint all his pieces. 

They immediately captured my attention and drew me in, he uses blues in all of his creations and this is something that is signature to his work and can be seen as an attempt to free the viewer from imposed ideas, due to the use of one simple blue. 

Klein really inspired me to push my ideas further when it came to involving the body within art, he wasn't afraid to experiment with different functions when it came to art and different practices.

How did I get here? By liz Nilsson

Material

Metals

 

The way in which Liz Nillson and the property of metal inspire me together are the way in which metal and the bonding within it connects together to form such a strong bond as one material. Nellson describes her installation as a collection of memories from the past, present and future, bonded together to create something that portrays the cultural effects of society and how it shapes us into who we are.

 

Looking into metals as the material itself we came across many interesting books in the library that'd us to one another, these books ranged from the process of colouring the metals for textiles design to jewellery work to metal structural work. 

The book 'Metal Paintation' by Mathew Runfold, to me, was the most inspiring as it held many ways of changing one material which is a beautiful way of looking at one specific material in its basic form. This book essential guides you through different ways to manipulate metals. My favourite process, shown in images, was on page 94 and this shows 'wrap and bury applications of how to transform the surface of the metal using colourant solution and muslin wrapped around the metal to completely transform the look.

The second research book that inspired me was called 'Textiles techniques in metals for jewellers, textile artists and sculptures' by Arline M Fisch whose work actually features within the book on page 129. This is a fashion sculptural knit collar using a coated copper wire. Through looking at this in a fashion sense it allows us to view metals in a different light and how they interact with the human form in regards to fashion.

In 'Ethnic Jewellery' by John Mack gives a historic insight into metal being used in different ways. On page 160 the image shows bead stone, bone, shell and copper used to create an ethnic piece of jewellery portraying different cultures using the same piece of material.

C H R I S T I A N S I R I A N O : Wonderstruck dress

The wonderstruck dress immediately stood out to me during my research process due to the use of textural design and 3D elements in the design and this is something I want to incorporate within my fabrics when reconstructing my jacket.

Liz Nillson 

Textile designer 

Images and research taken from LizNilsson.com

 

He concepts are formed around the idea of memories and individual personalities and the structure of repetition throughout a lifetime, this is shown in her work and various collections.

She bases her work upon the cycle of life and how that correlates with her design work through processes such as, laser cutting, print, stitching and layering into her finishing products. 

Her work is based on the idea of recalling memories and the repletion throughout life. She also brings in the idea of ones habitat and how that affects us as individuals. 

 

When looking into Liz Nillson my favourite collection of hers is one called ‘How did I get here’  this is an instillation made up of many different threads and then exhibited with them all draping down, this, she says, is to show how we are shaped by our identities and cultural confusions in todays society. This piece relates closely to cultural experiences that we face within our lifetimes and how we unthread and unpick them too form who we are. This is seen to be shown through the multitude of threads that represent the experiences in a past, present future. 

Another one of her collections is called 'Beyond in time' and this, again, is based on a running theme within her work and this is that memories and how she says that, "through our children we re-live our childhood". This piece was based on a piece that artist Yvne Klein did. This was letting their children paint their naked bodies and then making a print of the children body on paper on the ground.

printing and moschino

when looking into printing, Moschino was the first fashion house that came to mind due to their extravagant and creative prints and the push of colour and design in the different logos he uses. 

This inspired me when choosing my objects to print with.

Process

L I F T

The process we were given as a group was 'to lift'. After thourough research it still seemed difficult to understand and unpick the ideas of this. I narrowed it down to two separate ideas of 'lifting' something. The dictionary definition of lifting something essentially stated ‘to raise to a higher position or level’. This then got me thinking about humans and rising and lifting in a non conventional sense. When in the library and looking through all the various kinds of books we came across a book entitled 'Assume vivid astro focus' this book was essentially filled to the brim and exploding with colour and emotion and allowed us to think about how people may feel when they see these kinds of bright colourful works, for myself it gives a warm feeling, something that in my group we described as 'uplifting' and therefore felt that these images within the book fitted in perfectly with the idea of 'lifting something'.

We then looked into the conventional idea of 'lifting' something. I looked into architectural pages on the internet and then specifically into cranes as they are largely created from metal and are primarily used to lift materials on a large scale. The images I found on Pinterest were beautifully created and shocked as to how something on such a large scale could be photographed so beautifully.
