Investigating how Bio-art can be explored and interpreted through Textiles (Self-initiated project)

My Self-initiated project was first ignited by an article I came across, which was based upon bio fashion. According to this article, by the year 2082, we would no longer be using fabric for clothing, but our own skin cells to dress us. Despite the strange claim being pure speculation, it got me thinking about applying the theme of human biology into fashion. most notably,  creating biological textiles of sorts.

Many biological cells have a organic visual outlook which is always subject to change because they are… cells. This lead me to theorise what these shapes would look like on a surface, which is where I plan to take my project.

I’ve already done some basic sketches of cells as seen below, as well as simple textile making, along with some digital images as well, which can later be used as a pattern on a screen. 

(Sketches and paintings coming soon)

Proberly going to continue with this for a while and see where it goes as I gather more research

Effectiveness in Simplicity: Mr.Men research and source material

Considering that i would like this animation to be child-friendly, complicated forms of imagery just wouldn’t work in delivering the message. you’ve gotta know your audience to know how to write the message.

the simplist way to communicate is through shapes and after doing some research into child frendily shows in contemporary times, the visual styles didnt appel to me all that much..

So i took a step into the past and i remembered one show which fits in with what I’m looking for…

 

Image result for mr.men

Mr. Men for those who don’t know, is a children’s program which showcased radical personality traits and embodied those traits into characters. The designs were simple so that producers can spend more time on the characters actions, which in turn represented that character better.

 

I believe that they are remaking the series actually…. the point is; the designs for representing characters were really simple and in turn, i would like to replicate this in my animation. My designs in my previous post, were inspired by this source and i think it will continue to steer the visual essence of my piece as well as the message i would like to deliver in my project.
