Sunstroke #1

This design shows a white fabric (both front and back are white), with a visible leaf pattern in texture. However, between these two surfaces is a gradient of loose, colored yarns woven. As a result, we see a colored fabric when (sun) light shines through it.

The fabrics developed for the Sunstroke project show different shapes, colors and textures throughout the day. In this way, the project reinforces the way changing sunlight alters the perception of our everyday world by shifting expressions within levels of intensity, hue, saturation and position at different times of day, while celebrating the rich materiality of textile surfaces.
