suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Elvira ‘t HART: The collection wearable drawings is a series of drawings turned into wearable garments.
The patterns are quite literally sketched or drawings are used as a pattern, by making them digitally and cutting them out by laser all the drawn lines and characteristics of the sketch are visible in the final garment.
sP: What or who influenced this project?
ETH: Years of reading comics and being fascinated by the specific characteristics of drawings. A drawing reduces an image to the essential lines and adds the artists signature and imagination. I find it fascinating that even though sometimes a drawing can exist out of a few lines and is not at all a finished picture, we know what is depicted and subconsciously finish the image.
To be honest I also don’t like technical pattern drawing that much.., which was a motivation to find another way to draw and construct them!
sP: What were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?
