Hannah Waldron - Studies from Aversion
I offer you the way I see these trainers.
When I opened the box and saw my trainers, I was hit by an overwhelming feeling of aversion towards them: they seemed totally divorced from my ideals of design and function. So, after a long time of ignoring the ominous brown box, I made up my mind to invest my time and energy into really looking closer at them in order to find something there to inspire me to create. Through the lengthy processes of looking, making ink studies of the forms and textures and finally screen printing each shape individually, I offer you the way I see these trainers. In doing so I hope to place them in a new context.
