This past month I've been interning in Brooklyn, New York at a place called The Invisible Dog Arts Center, doing mostly web design and helping out with production. This was my first time in NYC! I loved it, and am possibly thinking about relocating there. .
The video above is a collage of textural footage from NYC, combined with some footage shots of Detroit, and some looks I put together that are inspired by the city. Footage shot by myself, and my girl Megan LaCroix.
Above are the context photos for each garment, taken in an abandoned gas station, and the photo below is from final show in the gallery space! ☆ ☆ The show opening was amazing, so many people came in to see the work. I'm relieved that everything is done and over, and I'm gRaDuAtEd! Official alum of the University of Michigan. But now I'm being shoved into the real world, no more school, no more set track. . It's alarming. I need to find a job. . .
Well, I'm off to NYC (for the first time!) this coming June for an internship at the Invisible Dog, a center for upcoming artists to explore their creative work through working with a community of diverse artists and performers. If anyone is from NYC and knows of some phenomenal places to check out please let me know. I'm in the dark with this one.
More photos to come soon! :)
Did a collaboration with Dahlia Wolf! They made a beautiful romper based on images and drawings I sent to them ;) Great people to work with, and I hope I do more looks with them in the future.
