fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

EVOLVE WEAR continued

With Art playing an important role in human evolution, the creative and innovative spirit manifests itself in fashion statements and wearable expressions.

This collection of storytelling visuals through video projected animations onto costumes exploring a 4th dimension
or the unexpected use of discarded products to extend the material's life, each creation narrates with a poetic or philosophical approach to fashion.
