02 Bio /
Ali Ahmed: based out of Autodesk, SF until 09/17, then George Washington University, Washington DC
I am an industrial design student in Washington DC, with 2 years of experience, some of which was spent reporting and working with the CEO of Autodesk, Carl Bass, on design projects. My voyage has sent me to work in San Francisco, DC, and Munich, and I have lived my 21 years in 7 countries. This brings an infamous culture to my own, in that my art is never an exhibit of a single type of thought or time, but instead a commingle of cultures, religions, voices, and languages that each portray the dynamic moments in my still graphic designs. I come from a background in classical poetry and industrial+interactive design.
03 Statement /
All 3 pieces illustrate directional dynamism, in that they attempt to make still life appear interactive. These three follow a color-trend in relating to deep, and sensual experiences at sight. Piece 1, with hard vectors, and defined line weight, crafts a more structured movement to it, in its parabolic projection upwards, it achieve the dynamism.
Piece 2 and 3 follow a much softer flow, with blurred edges, and incredibly rounded corners. their framework, unlike Piece 1, are rectangular solids guided towards one another. Layered cloaks of pink and red form a sort of cape to lay atop the abstract ballerinas, in their beautiful dance. In Indian culture, "laal dupatta," meaning red-scarf, is a very sensual, and romantic notice in culture and film. for this reason, the red and pink "capes" have been chosen in the color and form they have.
