Featured in HommAges No. 1, 2018
Originally a kinetic installation with automated cast and constructed garment forms, with symbiotic sound, exhibited as part of Merchant City Design Festival, Glasgow.
Mortem Simulans explored the intersections of applied surfaces, layered paint and artificial skin as a means to creating mechanised bodies of work within a mise-en scene. The installation was inspired by silhouettes, motifs and ideas from Marcel Duchamp’s ‘The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even.’
All garments are unique.
