In the studio environment, everyday objects were deconstructed and rebuilt into new structures. These new structures were photographed and subjected to the same process of collage and deconstruction. At the penultimate stage of this cycle, the coverings were again photographed, this time for an imagined fashion editorial. These images were then again collaged and deconstructed to complete the metamorphosis.
Like a snake shedding its skin, we are always casting off our coverings, in a constant state of flux. This project exposes the material potential of the old and worn, with each level of deconstruction creating new options and new propositions.
