Event Title

Anahata Pulse

Presentation Type

Design Exhibit

Description

The purpose of this design was to create digitally textile printed woven fabric strips by exploring curved lines and color gradients that visually represent the Sanskrit concept of the 4th Chakra, Anahata. Anahata is 4th of 7 Chakras in our bodies that is located in the center of our chest and serves as a bridge between our body, mind, emotions and spirit and is the source of love. This design is unique and original using both engineered digital textile printing and hand weaving techniques. Furthermore, the designers were challenged to weave curved semi-circular strips with straight strips to create a distinctive radiating woven pattern. This collaborative design project was able to integrate technology and hand craft techniques creating a sophisticated wearable art piece that was inspired by the 4th Chakra, Anahata, a swirling wheel of energy that is thought by some to be the source of love.
