Everything’s Fine, I’m Torn
The ubiquitous nature of fabric exemplifies its primary use to fashion items of purpose — from an unidentifiable collection of material into sewn pre-determined garments. The true vehicle of expression lies in the manipulation of the material to denote destruction, even if the act appears to be futile. Such an act, however, explores the intrinsic qualities of the material to tear, fray and fold as it pleases— striking various mental connections to usual experiences with fabric. It is thus negating the expected use of the material to manufacture wearable articles that will elucidate a creation of new forms in its destruction— an event of continuity that transforms into an entirely different body of work from when it first started.
