Inspired by photography

with Matt Queree

Light, light is everything, and it has to be just right to help capture the feeling on the location, and its environment. The image needs to capture the viewer’s gaze, it’s really important with an image that the viewer is drawn into a certain part of the image

Have a concept or story before designing. We are thinking about how the work interacts with the texture of the fabric. We like to explore ideas through different mediums and translate these into digital artworks.
