Everything for the Colour Project thus far has been a group effort. Now that our presentation is over and we've completed the trend forecast as a group, the next stage is to continue the project individually, adding other elements of our own.
Concept & Theme
As part of my concept and theme, I will explore the effects of technology on childhood, and how digital media somewhat corrupts personal experience and memory. How virtual simulations have taken over the essence of physical play.
Senses - to see, hear, taste, touch.
Self Sufficient Existence
Continuing with child-like pastel colours combined with sorbet yellows, peaches and mint greens. Perhaps working in metallics e.g. silver in relation to the theme of technology.
Details & Styling
Looking into dip dying and experimenting with graduation of colour, for example, a bright shade that then fades into white, or paler, duller version of itself. Capturing a graduating effect, starting off bright, vivid and turning into a duller, lifeless tone, expressing the effects of technology on ones experience and memory through graduation of changing colours.
In terms of details, I will look into computerised, electronic inspired fastenings; experimenting with wires, keyboard buttons, plugs, sockets etc.
Embodying the effects of technology in silhouette, as constricting ones senses, for instance, restriction of eye-sight by covering the face/ the sense of touch, by covering the hands. Ultimately creating a shape that expresses the idea that one is suffocated and separated from the real world, being so captivated and consumed in their artificial, digital environments.
