Abstract [en]

This project is an investigation of the relationship between spatial dressing and body dressing. It aims to find a new way of dressing the body by looking at how a room is dressed. It is explored by using the mindset of when dressing and furnish a room, looking at elements such as materials, details and fixtures of what defines the different rooms. To gain knowledge and understanding of the chosen elements they have been decontextualized and experimented with on a body, using the body as a spatial canvas. It has been explored through placement in order to challenging the limitations of starting points when dressing as well as other aspects such as the spatial aesthetic as dress, new expressions, function and shape. It suggests a playful- and different interpretation of how to dress the body. The importance of this investigation has been to keep the objects as they are, to mix the things we know and can refer to, in its original form and function, with an unexpected context in order to maximize its potential use and to question how we categorize things.
