Thesis Project - OCADU
Fabricating Stories
2017


My thesis focuses on aspects that create an immersive environment as well as narrative. I am interested in the fantasy genre and the dream-like and how the environments that are set in this genre are created i.e, what are the necessary conditions that form a fantasy space. I wish to construct a space or environment based on the translations of fantasy and dreams by adopting the persona of a Textile Fantasy Author. Just as an author uses words in a book to envision a space, I am using textiles to convey the personality of the space. There is a strong need to explore a textile piece the same way a fantasy author or poet uses their imagination to create a unique and ornate world of quality. My thesis is intended to be sublimation of ideas; from thought to space and text to textile, challenging what creates a narrative.
