I wanted to leave an imprint of my identity in some way. I thought making a costume would be a good way for me to express my identity. I made a neutral costume, wore it for 24 hours and found I had left an imprint of my body in the material.
The material I used was linen with wire sawn into it. The wire "remembered" my body shaped; a smart material.
With this costume I can be totally flexible about when or where I wear it. Anytime I wear it I leave a different impression in the costume. So my identity is always changing, new and collectable.
