Mindscape, Zip Tie Collar
Class: DS 319: Cloth to Clothing, Carolyn Kallenborn
Major: Textile Design
Mindscape - a scene or place uniquely designed by one’s imagination. This collar was conceptualized while imagining a place where nothing is quite as it seems. Mountains made of giant crystal, waterfalls that fall backwards, and tiger fur looking so soft, yet when coming upon it you realize it is rough as dry prickly grass. I took this idea of creating something looking soft and fur like yet really being rough and heavy and decided to create a surface entirely made of zip ties. This surface then turned into a collar in which one can wear and give the effect of wearing or having fur.
