Although this project is environment based, I don't think you can create an enviroment so lived by a native culture, with out studying that culture. So, I looked at the native Zulu that inhabited South Africa at that time, and still do in some parts. From my research I want to draw particulary a colour palette that feels part of the Zulu culture, making my enviroment meld with it. I also want to find styles, patterns and textures that I feel inspire me or jump out as being uniquely African in their origin, something that will make my work feel immediately African. Below I have put some select images from my visual research, ones that I felt I particulary benefitted from finding, that contained colours, patterns, and emblems that inspired me.
