fabric designs - papa drew

“Hidden Source” is a collection of photos, which have been manipulated and duplicated to create original patterns. To view the pattern individually would give no indication of the original source, and while the patterns are unique, the understanding of where they’ve come from adds a layer that is both surprising and unexpected. Working the image through photo editing software, image by image there are many possible outcomes, depending on the decision to flip, rotate or continue the image. Once the pattern is complete the old image is barely recognisable and a new patterned image takes on a life of its own. Perfect for creating original fabrics.

Walking through the streets of West End, camera in hand, preparing for a photographic walk with West End State Schools photography club students. This image was one of my earliest patterns, to me it looked almost tribal or Maori, I remember just meddling around while watching Friday night footy, there must have been a lot of tries in the game, cause I'm hopeless at doing anything else if there;s a good game of footy on.
