MUSTER MØNSTER PATTERNS
"All human societies use body decoration to disguise their kinship with animals.
Clothing, ornaments and painting attempt to underline man‘s kinship with the world of culture, not the world of nature, with the gods and the spirits, not the animals."
R. Brain, The Decorated Body
9-week-project, experimenting with digital print, domestic and digital knitting machines. Being on my own in this project, I tried to do things as different as possible from my usual "routine" - design process, colours, patterns, silhouettes...
Both digital print and knit can be used to reduce waste in fashion production, which intrigued me and also was an important aspect while working on the garments' shapes.
Free project at KHB's partner uni Designskolen Kolding, Denmark.
