Painting with light










I re-discovered some beautiful photographs while tidying my hard-drive today.

These experimental images were taken in 2007, of garments made in 2006 and 2007. The model is Lauren Orrell; the photographer, Cameron Attree. Cameron and I set up long exposures, and then painted Lauren with torchlight.

Most of these garments are from the 'Chance and Bricolage' collection. The making of these garments was largely improvised, developed from pattern shapes generated by various 'games' of chance (like lottery-style pattern selection, or cutting shapes while blindfolded).
