Hi-Def Romance SS 18-19

Hi-Def Romance is an exploration of queer motifs and narratives in textile design. A teenager discovers intimacy through a relationship that takes place over the internet. In the end, he is heartbroken and questions the actuality of the relationship. Synthetic flowers are a metaphor for the romantic obsession of the teenager. Creeping, enveloping, and even replacing him. A photo essay attempts to highlight the performative aspect of sexuality. A process of pattern engineering and 3D modelling on the photos result in the final designs.
