Date of Defense 2014-03-26 Availability unrestricted AbstractA Storied Surface is an exploration of narrative based graphic design engineered for textile surfaces. Beginning with an experiment involving the characters of the novel Matilda, I developed a design system. My process involves creating narratives and illustrating the characters. Then the illustration is abstracted. The abstraction is used to create prints. Finally, all of the elements including the original illustration, abstraction, and print are used to create engineered designs for three-dimensional surfaces.
Advances in digital textile printing and the increasing implementation of graphic textiles in the fashion industry led me to experiment with applying my own design to textiles surfaces. Through the creation of my own narratives, I refined my design system and reached a solution for three-dimensional application involving digital textile printing. The conclusion resulted in the creation of engineered prints applied to textile surfaces, which express my own narratives about the people and places of Provence, Côte d'Azur, and Toscana.
