Cartooned Mashup Couture
In her cartoon couture, Bjurstrom succeeds in making it look like early animation came through the screen and onto these pieces. Cartoon couture would be a great look, if it wasn't just a tad reminiscent of Christopher Lloyd in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit.'
Implications - 'Cartoon Trompe L'oeil' aims to alter the expressive content of early black & white animations into high fashion, thereby creating a confluence of imagination and reality. It is 1920s influence, but the topics of choice were humor, sex, and fear -- aka the topics that are still en vogue in 2011. Success is near for Karin Viktoria Bjurstorm.
