Abstract [en]

This report deals with the definition and meaning of garment. It explores how the meaning of a garment alters depending on how it is worn. Is the meaning of an garment somhow in the garment itself? By searching for new expressions in clothing by eliminat- ing parts and giving other a new purpose, the aim is to explore the aesthetic potential that occurs when two garment’s are incorporated. This is dealt with through a method that discusses the definition of an artefact. From a minimalistic point of view the es- sence of garments is explored through revealing what is underneath and exemplifying how the garments interact or affect each other. Through experiments I studied how to incorporate two garments in an natural and unforced manner. To find perfect balance in imbalance. As a conclution of my work i discovered that to create balance between two garments was to use the details discreatly and to focus on the small things. However I realised that the “perfect“ balance was not the aim i was striving for. Questions that has been discussed is how much does a garment need to be recognisable and how much does a detail need to be visable. As a method I see this as the starting point and there is more to be explored and developed.
