A collection of wearable and thoughtful textiles, 2021

Exhibited as part of Australian Eastern Daylight Time: RMIT Bachelor of Fashion and Textiles Design Graduate Exhibition

The relationship between textiles and the human body is one of co-dependence. Textiles aid the healing of our bodies; they bind, cast, wrap and hold us. Simultaneously, they rely on our care to prolong their lifespan and prevent inevitable pathways to decay. My work is inspired by transformative bodily processes such as bruising, bleeding and breaking, and the blurred boundary between textiles and human skin. I work with upcycled fiber collaging and historical repair techniques with careful consideration of the long-term stability of each piece.
