Through fabric silk screening, an application of pigments or dyes to fabric through a screen, I explore 2-dimensional pattern making. The process of printing on fabric serves as a means of playing with displacement and replacement of color and shapes. A diagrammatic playing, both free and calculated, ensues. I search for ways these processes can inform my decision making in architectural design and urban planning.
In these pieces, the celebration of my architecture work also became an important means of creating my own “cultural” artifact, a dress that explores my studio project in relation to my body. The weaving and tying of concepts and physical processes created a rich translation between mark making, modulation of marks, diagraming, and forming.
