Richard McCoy is a New Zealand-born creative who divides his time between fashion and art. Before working in Europe at some of the biggest names in luxury fashion in a print design capacity, his master's research was exhibited at London's Tate Britain. This research resulted in the world's first study of 3D printing directly onto fabric. With a recent solo exhibition, 'Hybrids Inside You,' Richard included print works and sculptures made from experimentally hybridized textiles.
Our digital selves, each a screen and a mismatched representation of deeper feelings; desires, pains, and pride. Hidden beneath these layers, we wait, our origins, and our realities remaining in question. What is the relationship between time, reality, and identity when change is so extreme? These new digital works explore these ideas.
