Parallel Landscape


Friday, November 21, 2014

In general the work of Aliki van der Kruijs explores the relationship (context) between colour, culture and environment with a specialization in textile. Nature is material and subject at the same time. During the master Applied Art at the Sandberg Institute (2012) Aliki juxtaposed her graphic- and fashion design background into a practice where textile as information-carrier plays a fundamental role.
Her thesis Parallel landscape is part of CONTEXTILE: a research into colour, context, text & textile. This thesis is not about what colours are but attempts to see what colours can do.

Parallel Landscape, Sandberg Institute thesis by Aliki van der Kruijs 2012 : graphic design icw Lena Steinborn

quotes:

Colour is everywhere. Everything is coloured. Colour is always the characteristics of something. Colour is an ever-changing self. Can colour support itself? Where does colour become visible? How do we make use of colours? Can colour become an environment in itself?

The remarkable thing about colour is the way it takes place. Visible as well invisible. This thesis is not about what colours are but attempts to see what colours can do.

I tried to find out how colours are changing location and dimension. It’s a thesis on how colour takes place parallel to the landscape in which they emerge.

 

GRA : DRESS-INDEX #0


Sunday, February 10, 2013

spring 2013

GRA = Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam
DRESS = Clothing in a broad sense; the way people wear, move around and behave in clothing
INDEX = List arranged usually in alphabetical order of some specified datum (as subject, or keyword)

 

 
Group D students will be tasked to each observe and register dress at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
GRA is the context and dress (of fellow students, faculty, etc.) is the subject of this visual research. The focus is on reoccurring patterns in dress. Perhaps a pattern of dress is linked to gesture; e.g. the way jackets are zipped half open in order to easily get cigarettes out of inside pockets. Students have to document a pattern, re-look and arrange, make new connections and draw conclusions.

All individual findings will be posted on this blog, serving as: GRA DRESS INDEX (Spring 2013)

Researchers / editors: Group D students
Initiators / guides: Elisa van Joolen and Henk Groenendijk
