'Automata are mechanical objects endowed with life by ingenious means' Levi van Veluw
"A flourishing curiosity about automata led to my discovery of the Sharamanka Kinetic Theatre, a museum of moving sculptures that light up in an array of exotic colours, forming intricate and ghostly shadows. This research has enabled the exploration of low and high tech processes to construct printed, knitted and mixed media textiles for outfits in a fashion collection, utilising bold colours and creating ghostly, graphic and multi-dimensional designs with a digital aesthetic."
