Samples 2015: Week 29, End of capitalism

Strips of sheer fabrics, fused to white cotton using Bondaweb

From this article in the Saturday Guardian 18/07/15:
“The end of capitalism has begun. Without us noticing, we are entering the postcapitalist era. At the heart of further change to come is information technology, new ways of working and the sharing economy. The old ways will take a long while to disappear, but it’s time to be utopian.”

Sample design
Only one solution here, to get the colour mixing effects where bands of colour cross.
I dug out my meagre collection of brightly coloured sheers. The first layer of strips touch, the second layer cross them at an angle and have gaps between them to get both pure and mixed colours with no white left showing.
To stitch or not to stitch? I was going to, but I liked it without so decided not to risk spoiling it!

Lovely, do one stitched one not ;) Like the Greece one too & your interpretation of Origami is better than the real thing!
