Miss Velvet Cream - Raven Dreamtime - HEADGEAR IX (2021)
This is a one of a kind piece of wearable art made for the Five and Diamond Ninth Annual Headgear Art Show and shown on June 18, 2021.
Dreamtime is the space where ideas, realities, possibilities emerge, a realm of ether and potentials, accessible through the in-between spaces, times, sensations, consciousnesses. Realm of Spirit. The entire piece is in black- textures and details catching the light, like a raven wing. The Raven communicates between dimensions, realms, spaces, from the world of Dreams to Waking. The detailing in front is simple, beading in black , recovered from a vintage dress that was in the archives of Silver Lucy. The headpiece is worn with the wings in the back, framing the head with wings of a butterfly, wings of the raven, like an oversized bow tied at the nape of the neck. Inspirations- Neal Stephenson’s FALL, Geju (find them on Spotify), Portals, Death & Rebirth, how small things repeated become big things, become currents, tides, seismic shifts. Made for any gender. Made for magic.
