Blaze Breakers > The Hunter and the Hunted

The Hunter and the Hunted focuses on the semiotics of textiles, particularly camouflage patterns and faux fur textures. I am interested in how these textiles communicate time and place, such as snowy winter time in the forest or autumn amongst the wetlands. Faux fur is so far removed from nature, often produced from manmade methods and materials yet mimicking the trophies of what were once living creatures. The juxtaposition of in/visibility within hunting textiles is fascinating to me: the hunter must wear this gaudy, blaze orange color to communicate his/her presence to other hunters yet also wear camouflage to blend in with his/her surrounding landscape.
