To Have An Original Thought (2 of 4)
Yellow t-shirt and Acrylic, Small/Medium, 2021
Screens know us better than we know ourselves. We depend on them for our memory and what order needs to be placed. They tell us how and when to feel. Information is rampant, hitting us with notifications that buzz our phones and light up our devices multiple times a day. Articles let us know how long the reading is because we cannot focus on one such thing for longer than a few fleeting moments. We go through our day, our week, our month and ask ourselves, “What day is it today?”
About the Brand+
A LINE OF KOPE provides contemporary insights on micro and macro cultural truths; a source of power, vigilance, spontaneity, and action atop of one of a kind, repurposed art garments. Founder Katelyn Kopenhaver is a wordsmith, artist, and sometimes sociologist. Her one of a kind garments are reflective of the world in which we live, as well are deeply personal thoughts, fears and realities. She showcases a series of responses from controversial to existential concepts surrounding human behavior, politics, truth and culture. Her fashion works can of course be worn, but also act as art objects, crossing mediums of sculpture and installation.The foundation of A LINE OF KOPE is painfully sincere and brutally honest. With the genuine desire to protect, expose, inspire and empower, her verbal assaults are not only contemplative but compel us to act. Kopenhaver wishes for individuals who wear her garments to engage in dialogue, take ownership, and not be afraid.
