Abstract [en]

Movement in relation to clothing has been conceptualized in many collections before mine. Mostly in terms of garments that move when the body moves. The aim for this project is to have another approach to movement. The attempt is to create a movement that is like a rhythm flowing through the collection. This approach allows me to work with static garments which together creates a rhythm. Movement is an abstract event and impossible to capture in a concrete way. To start my investigation about how I could picture movement I divided movement into three different categories. First, “the speedfull movement” which stands for “the actual” true movement, the one no one can ever capture except from the eye. “Trace of movement”, which represent that slight second where two cinematic pictures meets and creates an illusion of movement. “Static movement”, is the lines that in painting or sculpture can create an illusion of movement. The only movement that I therefore can create in a garment is always static. But, by butting them together in three I create a movement in between the garments. The movement is static but at the same time I could capture some of those “traces of movement” where two cinematic pictures meet. The movement in my collection is an interpretation of how static pictures create motion as seen in cinematographic images. The tools I use to accomplish this movement are perspectives, rhythm and pleating.
