Below are 3 fashion illustrations with details inspired by Alexander McQueen’s collections while highlighting focused areas of the body. I have collaged with a rich blue leather for example the boots, cummerbund, suitcase, hat and skirt. I see the body as an active electrical unit inseparable from the environment. The body is of consciousness and sensation and thus spatial. Clothing can enhance the barriers between body and environment and it can reveal the interactions of sensation, mind, environment.
These two images above and below are starts to 2 different series of illustrations. One being of ‘garments and robotic intelligence’ and the other ‘ figures, fashion and robots’.
I wonder about the skin of the natural world, the permeable kind, the slithery and creepy reptilian smooth… the rough and awkward that can come in fuzzy, furry surfaces or the metal and fragile…all kinds of diverse textures that perform the work of SKIN differently…lots to explore here…
