Central Park Skyline

This the second piece from my college thesis.

I chose to create New York City because I wanted to try making skyscrapers out of fabric.

The most difficult part of this piece was figuring out how to show the glass-fronted skyscrapers as a reflective surface. Dying my own fabric and layering the building faces in small sections to imitate stories solved the dilemma. In addition, I dyed both the sky and the reflective lake.

For the buildings that are not glass-fronted, all of the windows were cut out using an Xacto knife.

Another fun fact ... One of the green fabrics I chose for the trees has a dollar sign pattern. I thought that was very appropriate for New York City!
