DIY Identity Booth - Washed Out

DIY Identity Booth

The Identity Booth is an invitation to re-think dressing as an act of
self expression and identity construction. The public will be able to
participate actively trying different "looks", "disguises" or "identities"
and looking to themself on a mirror. Later, they will get pictures of their
new identity sent to to their email addresses if they want to.

The Collaborative garment intervention on jeans will be a
step into DIY and garment customisation world.
The public will be invited to take part hands-on on a live piece
intervention. Each material they ad to the clothing piece will represent a
mood or personality characteristic they can choose. The idea is to make
people think about what we communicate with clothing, and specially how
much we can communicate when we do or customise our own clothes. They no
longer spread somebody's elses message, but our own.

Finissage 17.7., 19 :00
