Yes, I don’t know if this is a real category. If it isn’t it should be. Even if I’m in the mist of changing carriers , I can’t help myself being drawn to fashion in some sort of form. It might be out of habit, after over 10 years in that field, or I truly have to admit to my self that I like it.
For over that decade I used clothing as an armor, to project how I wanted to be portrayed, but I was truly hiding and protecting my self from the world. In my opinion “Crystallization”, 2010, by Hana Coufalová , an armor made out of satin in origami paper style rappresnts this very well. I portrayed my self as a tuff impenetrable person, but in reality it would have been very easy to destroy that wall I had around me. I know I’m not the only one who uses this technic, because the world we live in sill requires us to be tuff and self-sufficient. Many time it’s not a conscious choice, and plenty of other humans do not even need to use this technic, but I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this one.
But enough reflection, Hana Coufalová’s work’s are amazing go check her out:
