In this project, I aimed to create a dress at first, with unique and intricate design. Later on while trying to make the dress stand up on it’s own, I realized that a person, or mannequin would be the perfect kind structure to hold it up. The person in the dress is in a pose that means a lot to me, for it stands for positivity. To me, crossing your arms or hunching are symbols of vulnerability in your everyday life. Posture can effect your confidence, and I have experienced instances where it has affected me personally. As a result, I wanted to create a symbol that represented a positive mindset for myself.
Personally, the most enjoyable part for me was creating the bottom of the dress. Coincidentally, it was also the most frustrating part. Using the drill constantly had me ready to move on to another step. Overall, this project was really enjoyable though because of my past experience with wire. I loved creating a stop motion that displayed my piece in a whole new way. I almost reminds me of a Target ad.
