My version of SolarPunk consists of optimism, reinvention, inclusivity, and technology. Contemporary artists like Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama inspire an optimistic and playful future, and Cecily Brown and Anslem Kiefer inspire the pessimistic and darker past. Being able to integrate a sense of playfulness into our current serious attitude is key, as it currently limits creative ideas for a better tomorrow. I draw inspiration from the movie "Annie (2014)" as its soundtrack yearns for a brighter future to come, having very dark lyrics but joyful instrumentals, and consists of ongoing optimism in a harsh world. My aesthetic, inspired by Annie, includes a vibrant red to show optimism for the future, a neutral white to reflect on the present as well as a neutral black to reflect on the dark past.
Tempus is a pant and sweater for any occasion. Tempus represents both a timeline, and the current division in our world, telling the story of three different sides. Three different time eras: the past, the present and the future. Angled cuts on different clothing pieces represent the division and border between all the eras. The vibrant red on top of the black and white represents the playful mindset needed for a better tomorrow.
