Description

Many designers take advantage of the possibilities that manipulation of basic geometric shapes offers. Some identify the importance of minimal or zero waste cutting, while others focus on use of geometry to create dramatic three-dimensional effects (Rissanen, 2007; Teng & Majors, 2003). The use of large planes of cloth also offers the opportunity to view the fabric surfaces as large canvases for digital textile design. Faces of El Salvador represents one design prototype developed as part of a research process structured to work only with squares and to use those squares for digital print compositions.
