ABSTRACT

I am creating a suite of garments in the domain of wearable technology, which are inspired by the awkward behaviors exhibited between strangers and superficial acquaintances. Inspiration is drawn from personal experience, as well as observations of others’ behavior in social situations, lending the wearables to serve as portraiture. The garments are intended to be functional but impractical, as they are designed to exaggerate the awkward behaviors in question in order to carry out basic interpersonal communication. Although this is an art project, serving as social commentary, as well as portraiture, it also takes into consideration elements of design and functionality.
