The piece is inspired from Alexander Mcqueen’s Spring/Summer 2010 Collection Platos Atlantis. The aqueous textures on the fabric were created using marbling techniques. The stillness of the torso in contrast with the multiple movements of the body results in the title Robotic Movement. It is symbolic of how we humans have been trapped in the world of technology, sinking deeper and deeper. Hence, the aquatic color palette along with the texture achieved from marbling is a representation of the waves of the ocean pulling us into the oceanic current, and drowning us.
