As a means of expanding Co-Lab Project's programming into the digital realm, artist/curator Vladimir Mejia selects artists to participate in an Instagram hosted month-long residency. Artists are given full control of the @colabprojectsbitres Instagram account, and all images posted by the artist are categorized by hashtags representing the artist name in residency. Original concept by Sean Ripple.
My art form relates to fibers and the way they are cultivated, spun, dyed, woven, stitched, and ultimately worn or displayed. My inspiration comes from the lessons I learn through various life experiences, observations, and mistakes. Through the manipulation of fabrics, yarns, color, silhouettes and textures, I visualize a lesson that I’m struggling with at the time. My art is completed in the way I choose to showcase finished collections of work - online, in print, and on the runway.
