(1st Place – Textile / Fiber Design)
School: Palmer High School
For this project I wanted to illustrate how childhood friends often grow apart from each other. I was inspired by my own memories of my closest friend in elementary school, and how this is the case with our relationship. I chose to use embroidery thread and the knotting technique used in friendship bracelets to emphasize the subject. I chose to use color symbolism to show how we had things in common but came from fundamentally different backgrounds which is part of why we grew apart.
