lisa shahno, Grid VIII, The Iteration, 2012

The Iteration Collection by Russian designer Lisa Shahno is inspired by the Fractal Cosmology Theory. The central issue to this theory is that the universe may consist of an infinite number of levels, which are similar to each other but different in scale. Garments of the collection represent a variety of matter levels in the universe. All of the pieces’ patterns are composed of the one repeating basic element – the square divided by diagonals – an elementary particle. Each garment has a different scale and a different number of elementary particles involved.
