Similar to a moving object, if our path is interrupted we will find another path, resulting in the necessity to break away from a straight line. These interruptions are the reason that our lives can be resembled by curves and not lines.
My garment is composed of materials that are theoretically linear. The faux leather bodice is embossed with a striped pattern. Tulle is comprised of a linear lattice print. The hand made pattern on the skirt and sleeves was done by sewing in a straight line. However, when the garment is worn and adapted to a human’s body, all of these initially straight lines become curves.
This is symbolic of how our lives have to adapt to the daily challenges that we encounter. We tend to be rigid and resist the turbulence and disruption of daily life. However, in the end we conclude that the only way to develop is to give in to adaptation and change. This garment at first was rigid, linear, and impervious. However, when put on the body it becomes organic, adaptable, and complete.
