In Between; Colour, Object
Dialogue between experimental design and fashion
In Between; Color, Object explores thoughts and processes about experimental clothing and textile design. The story is told via colors, motion, and objects, transforming these aspects into fashion design. The experiment happens when one trusts their intuition. Painting directly on the fabric: nothing can be predicted.
In Between; Color, Object is an exploration through thoughts about the process of experimental clothing design. Creativity happens in intuition. This work shows how one’s mind evolves into intuitive creations and how the “norm” in clothing could be thought of differently. All the excess is stripped off, leaving only the basics of a garment: blocks and objects. The motivation itself is purely concentrating on the visual aspects in the form of different objects. This project adapts the concept to fashion design.
By understanding the theory behind visual thinking, one can use it in making garments: the idea works as a tool but doesn’t determine the result. This project also approaches garment making and fashion in the engaging senses of abstraction in one’s trust in intuition. Kettunen trusts in his personal history and experiences as a maker, relying on his senses – touching, seeing, and feeling. Kettunen has painted silk fabrics in an experimental and intuitive process. Kettunen seeks to transform the philosophy and artistic practice of Laszlo-Moholy Nagy, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and Oskar Schlemmer into his artistic research.
