Mapping the Tailor Exhibition, Part 2
Here are just some photos of the Mapping the Tailor exhibition, down at Mr Tulk. This display is such a cleaver composition, as the use of the red string accurately pin-points where each student is placed around Melbourne, giving an aesthetic idea a practical application. But more importantly, the choice of jackets is highly appropriate in communicating the core of the research for this project. The technical jacket on on the right can be seen as the 'research' element, signifying the tailors which we tracked down from as far back to c.1900. While the exploratory jacket could be used to represent the student's contemporary development of tailoring!
I truly love what these girls have done with the space.
