Diploma project / Function clothing
Clothing released from its social functions and seen as an extension of the physical body
For my diploma project, I based my work upon spatial tourism and life living in space.
With weightlessness, the evolution of the body is completely modified, and the human being has to learn again how to move. As we always wear clothes, they can become helpful in this new environment.
I worked on different ways to facilitate body evolution in weightlessness, from anecdotes and realities told by professional astronauts. Thereby, I tried to define what a “spatial cut“ could look like, not characterized by the tissue fall nor by the shoulder sewing. In space, a such conventional cut is very uncomfortable.
My other two work hypotheses were, first, facilitation of the movement by promoting free hands in order to progress in the environment. On the second hand, by a more direct relationship with the furniture and the surrounding objects, the immobilization of the weightless body.
