Adaptation (2009)

This project combines concrete and the concepts of body adornment. The wearer is confronted by the unusual mix of materials, perception and form. The piece is versatile and can be worn in a variety of ways. There is an element of balance and unity as the wearer adapts to the unusual characteristics of the work whilst the piece itself changes in form around the individual.

The work creates an essence of appreciation whilst offering an alternative perception towards relationships between form, function and material. This concept of changing perceptions through material innovation is the basis of my work which i intend to develop within the final major project.
