'Seismic' print necktie with a framed photograph by Daniel Morel.
Daniel Morel was present on the day of the massive earthquake in Haiti in 2010, which took 200k lives and devastated the island. His pictures were the first to reach the public and alert the world to the scale of the disaster. On hearing the news Nicole and I were hand printing a length of fabric in our Harlem studio and we decided to try to shake the tool we were using from side to side to create a seismic effect in the pattern, in commemoration of the event. We later gave an exhibition of Daniel's photographs at our gallery As If. The Seismic textile design was taken into the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian design Museum in 2011. Print 16x24.
