Design Statement

Apple is a performance art piece that explores the themes of agricultural and industrial pollution by using the costumed body as a projection surface. By projecting images of smoke, chemical spray, and white noise onto the performer’s costumed body, a sense of unease and invasion of personal space is created. The costume is comprised of three distinct layers. The first layer is a short dress constructed of spacer (a spongy textile most commonly used in molded cup bras). The second layer is a floor length white dress made from crinkled, sheer, iridescent polyester, and the outermost layer is made from taupe silk organdy. The layering of these textiles gives an illusion of a hazy, polluted sky.
