This documentary will become a book, and as overwhelming of a task as that seems currently, I know it will be well worth it in the end. With this in mind I had decided to scan in some of my dresses creating repetitive patterns for use inside of my covers and throughout the books pages to break up my imagery and create a bit more cohesion. I have fallen in love with the textures that the flatbed scanner was able to capture of the individual fabrics (better seen at a larger scale). These textures, paired alongside their bright pops of color, have greatly strengthened this body of work. By using articles of clothing that I wear regularly I have created yet another highly personal level of self representation in this “girl culture” that I am trying so desperately to both define and capture. They are incredibly over saturated (not digitally altered) which is highly reflective of the way media grabs our attention: bold and punchy, attractive yet overstimulating.
