The body says what words cannot. The essence of movement is the expression of man – the landscape of his soul.
– Martha Graham
Movement can be considered as a language and one of the methods of visual communication. In this project, movement was used as a bridge to convey the wearer’s emotions to clothes.
The clothes are always covering the human body and an interactive relationship has been built between clothes and the body.
Movements of the body connote emotions. Clothes can receive the emotions and can be transformed by movement.
To visualise this interaction, I applied flexible wire into the shapes, and made them track the movements constantly. Undefined shapes and silhouettes that are created by the movements are transformed continuously.
According to this relationship, the clothes are referred to as an instrument to express emotions. Therefore, the clothes can be a method of emotional communication in a visible way.
