Process

Screen printing on polyester taffeta and experimenting different ratios of base to pigment to achieve correct colors in different amounts of  transparency

Digitally printed fabrics translates colors from the digital file to its designated inks, Fiber Reactive and Acid Dyes. Therefore fabric changes depending on the material it is printed on. An illusion of space is created through the relationships of colors by hue, overlaps, and  transparency

Research

The drawings are derived from simplifying and abstracting architectures in Persian Miniatures and traditional Korean documents and further exploring the unique perspective of visualizing 3D information to 2D. 

Color palette is designed to create a uplifting environment, geared towards children but still accessible to any age range.
