Psychedelic microscopic organisms by Loredana
Loredana Camarata is in her final year of BA Textile Design at RMIT University.
Shelter explores the concept of the nomadic and wearable home, in response to the ever growing case of natural disasters and the threat of a doomsday scenario in today’s world. By taking a playful approach to this issue, Shelter explores a sculptural textile design outcome that focus on both tactility as well as the idea of creating a new surface.
Screen printing techniques using acid dyes and puff paint along with embroidery and fabric manipulation to both sides of the fabric, create a 3D landscape and add volume to the surface design. The print direction and colour palette is inspired by microscopic biological organisms and their structures, fluid morphed and dragged shapes represented through contrasting and intensely over exposed brights and ethereal tints and tones that are reminiscent of nature’s psychedelia.
