We probed Sarah Cook, a quirky 4th year Massey University student whose final project 'GLTCH' explores elements of the 'uncontrolled' in her creative processes. Watch the video above for the interview with Sarah.
Her project concept originally came from the idea of the randomness of computer glitches:
"I wanted to play with the idea of uncertain outcomes to create innovative and unique imagery. I did this by using fluid media such as water and paint to create work that would decide some of the outcomes itself."
Her garment design concept flows with this 'uncontrolled' theme throughout the entire production process, from the initial birthing of her unique prints to the final manifestation of the garment, which is decided by the consumer.
She hopes to take this concept to the market, developing it during her Master's studies in 2016 and then going into business with an existing label/manufacturer:
"I would really like to work with someone in the industry to collaborate with, someone who has more knowledge in the fashion side of things. I have the knowledge in terms of textiles. I think together we could work to get this to market."
Sarah's work is part of the current Massey University end of year exhibition 'EXPOSURE'.
If you are here in Wellington go on down to Massey University and have a geez, the exhibit runs from now until the 21st of November 2015.
Sarah has also been experimenting with fabric printing using natural dyes. In a project earlier this year, she created an original dying process using her 100% natural formula including indigo, marigold and buddleia plants. YUM.
