Design Statement

Nightmares are Dreams, Too is work that explores themes of womanhood through the creation of an installation that blends visual art and costume design. Often the initial creative impulse of a costume design can be compromised by the needs or necessity of a production. Using this instinct as a guide to the exploration of what it means to be a woman, this journey yielded the design and production of highly theatrical and emotional works of art. Being a woman in the world today can be difficult, emotional, full of hard decisions, but also incredibly beautiful. It is also a very personal meaning, so each of the costumes are based on my own experiences and stories. After designing pieces that represented my life, I asked six incredible women to be models for this project. Throughout the measurement, build, and fitting process I discussed thoughts and ideas with each of them and asked how they related to the topics shown in their costumes. Together, we talked about what it means to embody an idea, which lead to the creation of each living character. The pieces were displayed as an environmental installation that invited viewers to experience costume design in a non-traditional manner.
