Breaking Through the Frame
“Cotton is more than the fabric of our lives; it is a screen, a place upon which we project our wishes, hopes, and dreams. It has become one of the most democratic mediums in the world, tearing the picture off the wall and breaking through the frame, then transposing it on to a t-shirt and inviting anyone to engage. No longer do photographs live in the rarified world of museums and galleries, prints and books. The photograph now lives on the shirtfront.
And when it is positioned here, it changes our relationship to the image. At once it becomes a symbol of the self, a projection out into the world. It is that which we choose and identify with, a way to communicate non-verbally to tell a story or myth. And in wearing art, we do more than simply advertise its existence; by wearing art we become one with it, in a way that paper can never make possible.” -Miss Rosen
