Abstract

Guo Poem was created in response to an assigned design problem called Art (Wear) Off the Wall. The purpose was to develop a design that transitions from a wall art piece to a 3D wearable. My original inspiration for surface design was from the Metropolitan Museum exhibition, China: Through the Looking Glass, which included artifacts with Chinese elements. Addition research included other examples of Chinese calligraphy on cloth. I realized that Chinese characters have many different styles and some characters have a shape that might fit on the body. The character Guo in the Zhuan style was selected for the shape, as it could allow openings for the arms to go through. A black cotton and spandex fabric and gold paint were chosen to create the effect of a seal cutting on stone tablet which is another traditional format of Chinese calligraphy.
