Fabrics Inspired by Black Live Matter

I took inspiration for my personal investigation from predominantly the Black Lives Matter movement. I decided to choose this as I felt it is an important topic that needs to be brought to light and talked about more. I was mainly influenced by the protests I attended and the protest signs for my final piece, so decided to go with a patchwork hanging piece. For this I used a variety of techniques such cut and fray, machine embroidery, hand stitch and melting plastic. I also wanted my piece to have an imperfect feel to it as many of the protest signs were rushed and messy and I wanted that to translate through my work.
