‘Out of Bounds’ is a print and embroidery collection which explores the importance of continuing to play make-believe into adulthood. It aims to help adults tap back into the make believe headspace through immersive and colourful pattern. The virtual reality programme Google Tilt Brush, is used to generate imagery in a playful and matured manner from drawing as a child. The prints have been turned into a collection of dress ups with oversized cut-out shapes, like paper doll dresses. The dimension of the textile is transformed from 2D to 3D through the enhancement of an Augmented reality app that is made for the collection. When recognised on an iPad screen, 3D drawings from Tilt Brush are projected from some of the dress ups, allowing the viewer to step into an imaginary space away from reality.
