Structural surfaces explore the surface qualities found within urban environments and interior spaces. These surface qualities will be explored in depth through scientific investigations in optics, to illustrate the movement of light.
3D models were created and inspired from initial imagery, which fuelled first-hand drawings. The focal point of every model was based around surface qualities in relation to light. Therefore, some models were submerged in water and others had a light source implemented within their structures.
A combination of architectural structures, 3D models and scientific investigations influenced the drawing, material, design and colour selections.
The collection uses a variety of techniques such as Print (screen printing, heat press and digital), Laser-work, thorough investigation and exploration into traditional and non-traditional materials. The application of this body of work is aimed at Fashion Mixed-Media, specifically fashion accessories/ embellishments, along with supporting fashion fabrics for a Spring Summer collection.
