1 – Fire. We are living in a period of unrest and brewing revolution. I propose designing additions to a dress to make it look like the wearer is on fire to represent the growing pain and socioeconomic struggle we face in an ever-technological world.

Inspired by Iris Van Herpen and “The Hunger Games”

2 – Iron Man’s Blaster. Superheroes have become popular in today’s culture, but they often represent war, terrorism, and fighting existential threats. I propose a wearable “blaster” that shoots bubbles instead of lasers in an art piece to symbolize peace.

3 – Heavenly Bodies. Pneumatically actuated angel wings combine with creative sewing and inflatables to create an angelic scene that reminds one of heavenly bodies.
