I was recently inspired by the Art in the Streets exhibit at MOCA. Among the hundreds of inspiring displays of graffiti art (which I will cover in another post), I was intrigued by the detail of Ice Queen by Swoon. An impressive display of Black & White paper cut outs in intricate detail and delicate patterns. The only light source in the room was from inside the display as it cast beautiful shadows on the draping white walls. I wanted to stay and study every single inch of detail. Since then, I have noticed cut out fashion & accessories particularly in black & white. Apparently, we see what we look for.
