poetically faulty

Sometimes you come across a creative force so great you can almost feel the earth shudder under your feet. There are designers and there are designers. Those people who's conceptual visualisations are almost overwhelming in their creativity. Those designers which have a talent for bringing to life abstract notions in a way which somehow just makes sense. One such designer is Noa Raviv.

Noa is an Israeli designer who's latest body of work, entitled Hard Copy, takes inspiration from computer glitches and digital errors. The collection features grids which have been warped by ruffles and folds. To create this the designer printed and stitched lines and grids onto fabrics to reflect the idea of corrupted 3D drawings made using computer modelling software.

She manipulates tulle and silk organza in a palette of black, white, orange and sheer tones, which is ruffled and moulded into these visual error messages and digital distortions.

I am fascinated by the tension between harmony and chaos, tradition and innovation, sensitively seeking for the perfect balance. My work is influenced by the dichotomy of the handmade and machine made and often combines traditional handcraft with innovative technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting.

If all computer errors were this beautiful I wouldn't mind seeing them so damn often!
