Drawing my inspiration from techno music and candy raver fashion, I will be painting a psychedelic mural on a shipping container where color, texture and pattern blend together as a means of self expression. As a frequent attendee of the Movement Electronic Music Festival (previously known as DEMF) in Detroit, the birthplace of techno, I am always blown away by the creativity and the amount of detail that each person puts into their outfits for the event. The way in which a club kid curates his or her “look” around the intensity of the music makes a powerful statement towards the freedom we have to express our identities through fashion. For so many people Movement is a special place where they can truly let loose, experiment and be themselves around other like minded people without fear of being judged. Movement has been a important celebration of Detroit techno culture for many years and I hope to emulate the bright, hallucinatory visual elements of the festival.
