Curiosity is described as the strange or unusual. This collection is based around strange unpredictability, and the idea that while you may think you know how something is created, do you really understand it? From a variety of process explorations, my work has become a human attempt to harness the beauty, and mystery of nature, as well as the cycle of decay and how each of these things is unpredictable. Nature is a cycle of life, and eventually everything will deteriorate. When uncertainty touches all knowing, pure creation is born. The sample work shown is a collection exploring the various strange and unusual mark makings in preparation for the finished design pieces. For my first collection piece, I chose to focus on a variety of “curious” mark makings through fabric manipulation dye techniques. I wanted to create an ethereal, mystery through the design, and this concept was further expressed through the use of found (naturally cleaned) vertebrae incorporated into a body piece. My hope for this collection is to inspire and cultivate a greater sense of mystery and possibility in our experience of the world. Through textile exploration, I seek to create a visual dialogue for exploring these ideas. Read Less

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein
