CUTTLEFISH – Another body 

 

This work aims to explore other types of preforming bodies. Bodies extending themselves into material and creating expressions based on the body in a dialogue with materials expression. Through this aiming to remove connotations associated with the body through this create for the audience an experience of freedom of imagination. 

Fashion design involves an aesthetics that is based the body as form and is often changed in form according to norms, trends and ideals, shaping by “artificially changing the body’s silhouette and sometimes altering its natural structure” (Koda, 2012). Further, the alterations of dress affect how the body behaves and moves by restricting, enhancing (Bugg, 2006) and enabling movements through both physical and psychological means. In Cuttlefish, the body is instead altered in movement qualities and through this as form. 

The visual removal of the body, contributed to experienced new bodies, it became something that the viewer can relate to on an emotional level as they became new personas and identities. Audience experience a large vary of emotions and personal associations many of them concerning identity; who we are and how we exist together.
