Photo Description:
Within the exploration of mourning my mother’s death as inspiration for my wearable art portfolio, I decided to create a piece exploring the feelings of wrapping oneself in a blanket to form a cocoon when experiencing sadness. Inside the blanket one is comfortable, warm, safe… yet at the same time the exterior acts a shell and protection to the world around you. By using my mom’s old jeans as the exterior - a material associated with durability, I achieved the protection and strength the outside provides. The interior is a plush fur, creating the comfort. The duality of this piece is important, as well as the feelings conjured while wearing it.
