Description

The conceptual inspiration for "Free the Mind" was to capture the essence of the creative process and show the cognitive mental action taken by designers. Conveying this purpose through the manipulation of sustainable design materials and demonstrating an innovative way of creating a surface design technique. As designers we are funneled with ideas that flood our mind that we have to extrude and as such, I wanted to execute this through showing a direct connection to the destructive nature of a tornado, both abstractly and organically. This was achieved by gathering old sweaters and blouses and creating a new fabric for the collar and skirt. Creating the new textile was accomplished by adding a third dimension to the surface of the coat with old electronic wires and adapting a new and creative way of cording and hand embroidery.
