Multi-Media Textiles

What we see changes drastically depending on what our perspective is. This is something that has interested me and has been explored within my work.

My collection is based on the shapes and compositions of my original photographs, which display unusual perspectives of both natural forms and cityscapes. I have translated this imagery into an interesting combination of knit and laser cut Perspex. I have used various types of yarn such as paper yarn, jersey yarn and elastic yarn, to name a few. I’ve also experimented with hand knitting as well as machine knitting which has created samples I intend to use as body pieces.
