These days I have a bigger than ever appreciation for baroque, rococo & anything that has swirls, curls, twirls, volumes, passion, exaggeration, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, .... Things that before overwhelming you completely, make you want to reach out & touch them either physically with your hand or caress them with your eyes, as I say.
So while working with fabric & especially 3D wool I make a mental note on dedicating some time when I go & travel next to better embue myself with the baroque spirit.
Come to think of it, they knew ohhhh so well what they were after: emotional manipulation at its earliest!
The "Hot dog soup" example above predates this phase of mine but it does shoe how two absolutely unrelated objects actually pair up nicely, stylistically speaking... And then all you need is a name. A catchy one, for sure.
So that the emotional manipulation would meet even more advertising techniques!
Who if not me would enjoy all that!!!
