This degree work places itself in the field of textile design, surface patterns and conceptual design. The aim of the work is to use the human body as a tool for designing conceptual surface patterns onto textiles.
The methods of designing were done through practical workshops. Examples of workshops is shadow workshop, motif workshop and pattern workshop. For each workshop appropriate rules was decided based on analysis of previous workshops. The outcome could be presented as two types of results; firstly, a design method for generating surface patterns, and secondly, heat transfer printed textiles that prove the validity of the method. The work proposes an alternative approach for inspiration to designing surface patterns.
