is a device developed as a post-post-modern homage to neo-classical
wallcoverigs and fabric patterns. As ornate and decorative as
its fathering patterns, it has a familiar and comfortable aspect
to it, however its post-modern quality stems from the fact that
it originated from camoflage. It is a Rorshach of camoflage,
a repeated and regular pattern created out of an intentionally
random design, organized chaos, or a camoflage that resembles
that of an animal much more than that of the military.
I intend the pattern to be used as a domestic camoflage, as
on differnt scales, and in differnt colours it can disguise
different domestic blemishes, as well as emiliorating and enriching
environments without recurring to classical patterns that can
be regarded both overused or cliche'd as well as tacky.
The design was submitted to Formica's 'Design
a Laminate 2005' competition, however variations on decoflage will soon be available
as stencils and tileable patterns.
