As a textile designer I became interested in developing interchangeable modular systems that promote sustainable design. Inspired by fundamental geometric structure and patterns of growth in nature, I have explored concepts of symmetry, tessellations and fractal geometry in the creation of modular patterns and shapes for practical application in textile and fashion design. These modular pieces, which can be combined or taken apart at the will of the consumer, are used to explore a practice that encourages the end-user to participate in design process through a flexible approach to the creation and transformation of textile products.

Transformative Modular Scarf #1
20' x 20" x 20"
Laser cut nonwoven fabric
2011
Developed from the tessellation of equilateral triangles, these modular textile pieces can be constructed in a variety of ways allowing the user freedom to personalize the design through playful experimentation.
Transformative Modular Scarf #2
20' x 20" x 20"
Laser cut nonwoven fabric
2011
A modular design for a scarf based on a tessellation of interlocking square pieces. The design encourages the end-user to participate in design process through a flexible approach to the creation and transformation of the product.

Transformative Modular Scarf #3
20' x 20" x 20"
Laser cut nonwoven fabric
2011
A modular design for a scarf based on a tessellation of interlocking hexagonal pieces which can be combined or taken apart at the will of the user.
