Melanie to recreate a ‘Future Antique’ for the exhibition ‘Ever and Again’2007. Looking at the integration of historical imagery and craft with new technology. Material Attachment builds on previous research that looks at historical imagery as inspiration but working within digital media. The project investigates methods of pre-treating eco fabrics for digital printing such as hemp, organic cotton and wild silk. This eco fabric will be incorporated back into a vintage garment with the intention of giving it a second life.
