Parallax is the apparent displacement, or difference of position, of an object, as seen from two different stations, or points of view. The term is derived from the Greek παράλλαξις (parallaxis), meaning "alteration". To me, carbon fibre has a darkness, it is associated with secretive cutting edge technology, such as formula 1 cars and fighter planes. But even though it is high tech, it is often made in quite a hand made way. I wanted to keep the dark and mysterious atmosphere that surrounds the material, but also to introduce an element of craft and emphasise the fact that it begins as a cloth, something like a fashion garment. To break up a monolithic surface and give it layers, detail and interest and to contrast its toughness with fragility.
