In the game of chess, the board’s contrasts of light squares against dark ones offer a visual representation of the dialogic — a confrontation of opposite forces. Checkerboard print, however, introduces another voice. With squares of interstitial shades between opposing ones, the pattern offers a visual representation of the dialectic: the intercourse between two distinct actors that produces a third. Presented with any binary, we’ll take both, then make something new – or at least try to manipulate them.
A “trompe-l’oeil” print gives this sweater the illusion of being physically twisted – like a checkered bed linen clenched by a hand during a dream or sex, or observed while on drugs. The mohair/wool blend used for this particular hallucination is 100% ethically sourced, cut for a relaxed “grandpa” fit, and grounded with a “machine metal” logo hardware rivet above the hem.
