IMPRINTS BRIEF: (Presented by the Weisman Art Museum, WAM Collective and the UMN College of Design)
Taking inspiration from Melissa Stern’s exhibition, The Talking Cure and Rebecca Krinke’s practice in What Needs To Be Said? create a runway-ready garment that utilizes non-traditional, found, & up-cycled items, and describe how the garment/materials tell a personal story. How does your external self-presentation interact with your internal self? What do you conceal or enhance? What do the objects you consume and collect tell about who you are?
For me, the copper wire represents the framework of my skill sets and the beginning of a solid foundation to build from as a designer. It also represents the constriction of perfectionism and emphasizes the messy process of learning and growing.
