skeleton-skeletoff - illustrations
Because the madness is finally over, I can start breathing again and post more. Here is my MA project, a collection I've been working on for quite some time now. It was definitely a challenge, and I wanted to take it on my own this time, so I can say I learned a thing or two about the creative process. It is slightly different than my BA collection (Carnivale) but still on the dramatic side, since I like to explore with gravity.
The concept is rather simple, I thought about how things get formed, how they take shape and it occurred to me that everything starts with a line or a dot, a note, a word, a pattern, an ingredient, an idea... and that would be the base, the skeleton, onto which we add layers and layers just to get that final desired shape; much like the human body is constructed. So I constructed my shapes on top of, and from, a skeleton. I got inspiration from human and animal anatomy as well, with the structures, the lines, the shapes, and transformed them into a personal, plastic and decorative vision.
