Big Muscles – Fremantle Print Award 2019

Freamntle Arts Centre. Print Award 2019.

Big Muscles target the common misconception about where true strength and power comes from: it is certainly not to do with the biggest muscles. The digital designed for the blanket was fed to a mechanical weaving machine to make a one-off textile. “ Blankets are commonly associated with comfort, warmth and protection..The black form is specifically utilised to make this message accessible to those who are traditionally dis-empowered. Show your muscles; physical mental or emotional.

Blanket created with Slow Down Studio.
