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.


Current Artist:
Ida Behjat


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.
