Sebaceous Lace






A pattern based on illustrations of sebaceous (sweat) glands was created. Gold leaf wearable artefacts were applied to body-sites using the design.

The project demonstrates a skin-based approach to dressing and designing dress. Lived skin is at the centre of this practice: the process of dressing is a means to engage with fleeting, subjective experiences of wearing artefacts in brief contact with the skin. Material Application Projects, or MAPs, are conceived as a simple way of increasing attention to the conditions and experiences arising in the intermingling space between skin and dress.
