So I went to see the Shenkar 2009 textile graduates show.
Here are some of my favorite works:
Noy’s work is made of partly unraveled polyester, printed by sublimination technique on itself or on other fabric .Noy used an ink gradient color-between blue and purple, and on some fabrics you can see an 18th century French print motif. The project is soft and floaty, but raw and chaotic in the same time.
The project calls “This is not a love song”.
In this project Shevet is building new structural forms by identified the single stitch/loop- the font, transforming the basic form of the unit, and building new fonts for knitting. Building patterns (sentences) of knitting courses and printing the patterns onto textiles.
Here you can see Ido's full portfolio.
Bar has created a fabric that is built from endless prints that harden the fabric at specific areas, which makes the two dimensional structure into three dimensional structure.
Hagit’s inspiration was of a surrealistic forest. The materials she used were wool, kashmir and reeds, all were knitted and weaved together into beautifully made pieces.
Shenkar 2009 graduates show will continue till the 4 August 2009, and there are presented graduates works from all the design departments like fashion, jewelry and so on…highly recommended!!
