I had the opportunity to explore the subject of hay fever, I explored similar shapes, colors, and scenarios when using the microscope as my research tool.
My concept became, creating an entity by my garment that beholds the visuals, shape, and color of how hay fever elements could look without needing a microscope. I started researching and exploring new methods of knitting and making biomaterial by modifying the recipe. I included observational drawing and repeated this over time. Then creating a range of samples and narrowing down the best possibilities for the outcome and then mimicking the biomaterial with knitting. I presented my outcome, by making a video that was located in the middle of a busy bridge on an Embankment outside of the station.
My model was acting upon my instructions which were mostly asking her to feel like pollen or a piece of dust that walks and dances among the people who are busy with their own lives as this is what hay fever does. Meanwhile, I did photoshoots at the same time while we were filming focused on detailed pictures of the garment.
