Downtown Art Gallery Jacket
TheDowntown Art Gallery Jacket, was created as a piece in a continuing series to demonstrate research conducted into effective hybrid presentation techniques for the transitions from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional wearable forms. The aim of this project was to use 2D/3D textile design technologies to create pieces that function as metaphors for our relationship with the world and the impact that we, as individuals, have on our immediate environment. The printed imagery directly relates to the structural forms in the environment and includes visual interplays between the perception of two and three dimensions. This work involves the viewer in the process of conceptualizing the transitions from 2D shapes to 3D objects by asking them to physically interact/try on the piece as it remains connected to the gallery wall.
