So.... The Museum of Arts & Design has a terrific PR person, who sends us almost daily PDFs and references to reviews of the current exhibition we are participating in. Today I received a very lengthy pdf of a piece that was published on a members-only trade website. The company that published this huge grab page on its site is described as "the leading global service providing online research, trend analysis and news to the fashion, design and style industries. XXXX is based in London and has offices in New York, Hong Kong, Seoul, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Tokyo."
The eight page pdf was composed mostly of extreme detail images of the artworks in "Pricked"... "a great exhibition for directional ideas". The dozens of close-up images were taken out of the meaningful context in which they were created, but showed some cool "effects" that you will soon be seeing on designer clothes and home textiles in a store near you. The closing comments on the image bank of our work reads, "The 'Pricked' exhibition offers endless inspiration for textile and surface design (emphasis theirs), particularly in relation to our womenswear trend directions for autumn/winter 2008/09 - Disturbed, Elusive and New Frontiers."
I am happy to send a copy of the pdf to anyone who emails me.
