A Collaborative Experiment of Joy

Digital Photography


The artwork combines costuming with repurposed fabrics. The piece features shirts and paints that have been taken apart and dyed. The fabric then becomes the focal point of the collaborative experiment between Pixel Heller and Usoma Ekpunobi. In my practice, I explore themes of Carnival and masquerade. I wanted to reuse fabric to create wearable art that incorporates the body and movement. Collaborating with another artist was something I wanted to explore as community plays a role in my art practice. From finding donated clothes from friends/Reuse Depot to having someone document the performative aspect of masquerade and costuming, the community continues to play out in my work.
