Elivira T Hart (2013)
Did you ever do pen and ink drawings in school or doodle on your homework with scratchy lines? I used to draw anime characters and scan them into the computer to colour them. I remember having a hard time getting the lines to translate from my paper to the program.
In these garments, Hart’s wild hand drawn lines create life and excitement. Their imperfection connects to our own. (Are flaws not the ultimate characteristic of being human?)
And yet, the delicate realization of these intricately wild lines has been made possible by technology. Drawings were scanned and laser cutting used to get the precise, clean edged cut.

“You talked to one of my lieutenants. He has, over the years, played the role repeatedly and with great conviction. More often than not, he’s done so to protect my identity. Other times, it was because I suspected a potential client might.. struggle with my gender. As if men had a monopoly on murder.”
let me explain to you how genius the deconstruction of Irene Adler is because in making her a conscious manipulation; an artful and purposeful creation by moriarty in order to ensnare sherlock they have destroyed The Woman; the one individual who eclipsed the whole of her sex and at whose feet Sherlock fell they’ve taken the goddess down off her pillar and revealed the woman in the fridge was a doll all along Irene Adler is only a story; can only ever be a story; because there is no Woman only women and they are villains as well as heroines and they are clever even when they make mistakes and they can hold the world together whether to take advantage of it or to save it for the people they love but there is no Woman there never could be and Sherlock had to learn that elementary the best goddamn show your favs could never
