ARTISTIC STATEMENT_ ACCIDENTAL CUTTING/ Eva Iszoro
As a designer and artist, Eva Iszoro explores the genesis of virtual textile volumes in a way that is entirely original and novel. In doing so, she applies the experimental pattern cutting method known as 'Accidental Cutting', which she founded and described in her PhD thesis, leading to the award of the Extraordinary Prize by the Polytechnic University in Madrid in 2017. This method is focused on discovering, rather than searching for, volumes that have not existed before, through abstract, random, and accidental cuts and patterns.
The unexpected volumetric results can take on deeper conceptual meanings, evolving into elements of visual language. Fashion transforms into textile art, becoming veritable textile sculptures, occasionally in motion, and experimental pattern cutting becomes a creative tool. Generally, the main goal is to uncover the non-existent through entirely experimental processes. These have been further enriched through the utilization of virtual reality, enabling a deeper exploration of phenomena and perceptual experiences that remain inaccessible in the physical world.
