Series of Stoll Knit or Dobby Woven textiles inspired by Arcade
Pop-culture defines a collective culture, one that most people can easily relate to. To me, arcade game references come from very personal stories, while at the same time, they are also about everyone else's experience.
Pop-culture references can easily be seen as fun and playful, but their overarching power might represent more. Universal associations with video game characters or famous logos might represent how generalized the world is; homogenous scenes that anyone can comprehend no matter geography or status.
Many living in this globalized world will be able to respond to this series of work with their own unique stories. These textiles inspired by pop-culture represent my continuous attempts to create universally recognizable work.
