the machines were inspired by those in the factory where smith worked

 

 

while working at a t-shirt factory in 2013, smith was inspired to build a tiny replica of the studio. over a span of 5 months, smith developed the factory as a gift for his employers. the artist further explored his creation by developing a fully functional miniature screen printing rig that transfers unique designs onto tiny clothes.

at a barbie doll scale, the clothing is perfect for miniature toys or dolls. the prints can be fully customized as the machine is designed to function in the same way that a real silk-screening press does. to view more of his work or to commission pieces, check out smith’s etsy and instagram profiles.
