Working on the design for my website...I may divide it into two sites, one for apparel/textiles (ie. and one for photo/video/design (ie. May  still do it but not sure. 

(((click for bigger image)))

I'm pretty set on the layout but I'm having problems with the font & color choice...thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Providence Werkstatte

Currently......shoulder extravaganza!

Machine knit blue linen & fushia cotton.

The shoulder bulbs are squishy! I like the technique enough that I'd like to try doing it all over a piece. 

Haven't decided what to do for the bottom....I always prefer to make full outfits as opposed to just one half. Any thoughts? I'm out of both yarns, so I need to think outside the box.

And I'm super super excited about my film class! Check out what I've made so far:

33 Ghosts IV

14 Ghosts II

(sorry for the low quality- youtube uploads badly.)

Both have music from NIN's Ghosts album, and the songs are courtesy of a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 US license. 

They aren't the full songs, and they're definitely not perfect, but I plan on going back and redoing both of them sometime this semester.

More machine knitting, combo of short rowing and vertical transfer techniques.

Oh, the joys of photographing! (haha, sometimes it does make me incredibly happy.)

Quite happy with these...not done editing the whole set yet but keep your eyes peeled for more soon!

My favorite from the shoot, and the one I'm using for my show :D

Suffice to say backlighting makes me want to touch myself with happiness.

Better shot of the garment:

Black plastic, hand gathered into bulbous growths.

Again, dinner plates are really  handy to make circles with...I've also found that using white-out as a way to mark shapes/outlines/where to cut/etc. is very helpful. It shows up well and scrapes off once dry. 

Machine knit collar using double treaded white polyester yarns, short rowing technique. Super secret liquid latex formula to make the spill, and hand plated rosettes to top it off.


Plastic, hand pleated to look like a vagina & clit ;)

The background sort of looked like a womb, which was awesome...I'll have more full body shots when I finish editing them.

Finally got around to editing my other favorite shot from a shoot over Thanksgiving:

VERY happy with how the overall feel came out- looks like she's almost floating. Funny, one of my friends just mentioned that much of my work is "ground-less," ie. I place my models in very detached places. LOL. 
Lots of in-camera Canon 40D goodness, then post processing in Photoshop CS3.

Model is the lovely Mosh.
Red & gold latexxxxx.
