`Dislocations' is a series of three textile works, created by Armando Chant in collaboration with Donna Sgro. The works were presented as part of Interwoven which is a curated selection of fashion and textile works of the Design Institute of Australia Textile Practice Group. `Dislocations' investigates the biological phenomena of patterning that is evident in butterfly wing growth, and the resulting structural distortion in the pattern that develops. The textile works were an investigation of this structural principle through their constructed methodology. The three works were hand-screenprinted in monochromatic half-tones, sliced and re-constructed through stitching, emphasizing the disruptive nature of the pattern. The works are an investigation into the creation of `constructed disruptive imagery' using a biomimetic methodology. Disruptive imagery has been developed in relation to textiles in the area of camouflage. Camouflage is a biomimetic adaptation where pattern is used to cloak what is seen. Using a different principle of disruptive imagery, this work investigates how other biomimetic adaptations may be used to disrupt the visual within a textiles context. Interwoven was exhibited at the Design Gallery of the DIA Head Office and promoted to members of the DIA nationally as part of LOOK.STOP.SHOP, a Melbourne Spring Fashion Week event.
