My guiding creative scholarship question is:
How may I use theoretical frameworks or data collected from traditional my research projects as a basis for apparel designs, wearable art, or fiber art?
As a result, my creative scholarship program has focused for the past several years on 4 areas:
the reuse of metal garment findings in textiles and garments to explore paradigms in social responsibility,
the creation of machine and hand felted textiles inspired by fractal chaos from chaos theory; and
use of Ghanaian textiles for evening wear creation within the realm of afrocentricity and black consumerism.
integration of wearable technology into accessories and apparel.
