FRAMING THE PROJECT. Tunnelscapes is the name of my masters project. Tunnelscapes is a collection build around a concept that constantly seek to create different and unpredictable shapes around the body, through the use of odd material combinations and by involving the body itself in the construction. The body has always played a major role as both inspiration for my projects and in my way of working with silhouettes and garment making. This collection is inspired by the body’s ability to bend, rotate, collapse and change. In my study of shape, I have used a cutting technique called subtraction cutting. By removing fabric from certain arears tunnel systems occurs on the inside of the garment, creating empty spaces for the body to occupy.

FRAMING AND INSPIRATION. I am fascinated by things that stand apart from the norm just enough so that is barely noticable. The field between the recognizable and the remarkable is what I find interesting. This fascination is the basis for my bachelor and is the reason why I have chosen to work with the eye syndrom cross eyedness.Through my research, I have tried to describe how a cross eyed person looks at the world and how the world looks back. I’ve explored elements like scale differences, alterations in relations to the central axis of the eye, and repetitions. My many references to classical clothing should be seen as recognizable elements that is used to underline the concept of my collection.
