How do you take a sculpture and turn it into a scarf? Unless you’re proficient in something like Photoshop, which I’m not, nor am I likely to be anytime soon, you get someone else to do it.
So, the project has taken on another facet. Out sourcing to get things done. As a self funded project it effectively doesn’t have a budget, but there’s no getting around investment, however scary it is to commit, so, I had a look on Freelancer and found a designer in India, Zeeuuss, to blend some images form Misha’s works and size them into scarves and shawls etc. He is a freelance designer (you can find him on Freelancer.com if you want to check out his work) which meant with his professional eye I didn’t have to explain too much about what I was trying to do.
Above are some images from Misha’s work on display and with the last one a molded images ready for printing. The results look rather promising. I know them as paintings and sculptures and can’t wait to see how they turn out as scarves. Now we have to pick the right type of silk.
