Project Name: Diver’s Story
Artist Kassy Keppol designed Diver’s Story to tell the story of the friendship between a girl and her friend Porter. Across Porter’s body there are ten storybook picture panels showing different scenes of things they might be doing together. The picture panels are framed and connected with faux batik and henna designs. The whimsical scenes are meant to draw the eye and the patterns to capture.
