Growing up, Booker would sew and create clothing with all types of fabric. Ridlock tells the tale of human adventure and experience. Through the concave and convex patterns of the material, and interpretation of the complexities of mankind is being depicted. When one thinks of the word, “gridlock,” an association to traffic jams and intersecting streets is made. Gridlock calls for the contemplation of how human challenges cause and affect mental stability and growth.
