Vestments

I implement vestments to invoke a somatic, bodily awareness, recognizing the body as a common ground for engaging with our surroundings. My wearables function as models and tools to tap into the lived, physical participation in this world, externalizing the personal interior through stylized forms which, in turn, evoke connections to other forms of life. Objects which simulate cocoons, exoskeletons, wings and tentacles, provide an immediate sense of transformation into another kind of being. Wearers experience containment, elongation, extra appendages, and limited visibility, appreciating their own mobility as humans yet also becoming aware of the abilities of others.
