Pliable, Modular, and Layered Material Studies (Cont.)

This time around the class was required to re-vamp and finalize our creations and experimentations with the pliable, layered, and modular material studies. Here were my finished pieces…….(see below).

  1. (top left corner), This is my pliable material study of course; I finished this up with multi-colored geographical map paper, placed everything on a grid, and used nickels and quarters as my semicircle outlines, there is a diagonal- straight through the piece and various notches situated throughout; inspired by salmon leather shown at the material library class visit.
  2. (top right corner), Here is the modular piece; it is fairly identical as far as overall form is concerned; I kept the shape of the panels the same and used the same material; it holds together through notches; however it differs in that it is now hexagonal (extra panels) and it is canopied in left-over scraps from my layered material study.
  3. (bottom), Which leads me to the layered study; the concept remains the same…weaving; however this is now given some contrast with the black and white as opposed to one solid color; construction paper and card stock are used; it is sewn together instead of held together by the use of flaps, and there are geometrical strips weaved through the grid.

Hello, My name is Megan Taylor, I am a returning student here at Parsons; my major is Fashion Design with a peaking interest in environmentalism and animal welfare; I hope to transform the industry someday...slowly but surely. My wish is to combine luxury and aesthetic appeal with the consciousness of how and where it is made along with the idea of what to do with it after use. I have been following my need to create and share with the world art and fashion since the tender age of eleven years old.
