“Camouflage is the use of any combination of materials, coloration, or illumination for concealment, either by making animals or objects hard to see (crypsis), or by disguising them as something else (mimesis).”
I researched several animals such as seahorses and octopus can being very brightly coloured, it makes them blending into the local coral. I found the majority method of camouflage often through a general resemblance to the background. It seems like the animals choose the location and space first. By contrast, I want to do a project that is moveable. It is not necessary to set up for a specific place but can fit to a lot of different spaces. Then, I got the inspiration from urban grille suit like the pictures below.
I want to do a pile of moveable dumped clothes outfit. Once I lie down on the floor no one will notice there is a person inside, and I can easily just stand up and go around to find another spot to lie down again. As a result, that object can be appear in any corner. It will be something looks similar like that image below:
I began to cut some my own dumped clothes last Tuesday and bring them to the group. I got some suggestions like bring a laundry bag beside me or put some paints on (as we are in visual art building).
I sew on different pieces of fabric on the outfit that I am going to wear in the end, and tried different gestures to measure where should I put each fabric on in order to cover my whole body. I finished my top outfit during the weekend, and keep working on the pants.
The overall outfit:
I sat down on the floor/ground at different spots around visual art building.
A corner near the painting room
(A pile of clothes tried to stand up~)
Did I surprise you?!😉
