A series of garments that transform the body through the use of technology and unusual materials. Alongside the garments, I’ve created short narrational poems that give context to the individual characters that I have created.
Click on the images to view the slideshow. Below are links to the individual pieces and their corresponding narrations.
Woven phosphorescent wire creates an enclosure of illumination that secures and protects the body.
While spinning, this garment creates a protective barrier of light around the wearers head.
Snake-like luminous limbs emerge from the base and coil around the wearers head. The cape acts as a protective casing as it wraps around the body.
As an exploration of materials, this piece was constructed using layers of fabric and wire fencing to create an organic spiral shape around the body.
