DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

The macrame technique is mounted on headpieces and garments the body of models seemed weightless. And, it is explaining both outer and inner life in the most fundamental forms.

INSPIRATION

Drawing inspiration from the silhouettes of sumo wrestlers, and understanding that inside each of their body’s their bones are no different than any other person’s, I highlighted this overlooked fact for my collection.

MATERIALS USED

"Macrame" - a netting technique used to make ornamental silk aprons for sumo wrestlers’ ceremonial entrances to the ring. I chose mesh tube that is usually used for making accessories to make it more contemporary. The digital prints come from my drawing in my research book.
