While the T/SHIRT ISSUE showcases a handful of works the most dynamic is a 2-part installation called Muybridge, its concept is based on capturing sequential change in the 3rd dimension.
The focal point of Part 1 of the series gained inspiration from the segmentation of motion when a bird is spreading its wings. The spreading of the bird’s wings is transformed into a sculpted T-shirt. The change in the position of the birds wings symbolizes a function of 2 dimensional timeframe, the different position of the wings are transmitted and modeled into a polygonal form portraying the distribution of motion.
The installation was conjured up based on a photographer from the 1800s, Eadweard Muybridge, an innovator and pioneer in the realm of capturing motion. He visualized stop-motion photography and captured dynamic movement into still photographs.
Like part 1, the 2nd part of the Muybridge series also encompasses a digital, temporal change of the 3rddimension into jersey garments. While birds are still the main focal point of the series, this portion uses the vision a bird in flight.
The jersey, interfaced T-shirts capture the animation of flight into something wearable, the shirts are representative of 3 images of flight that are frozen frames, showcasing the different positions of the birds body during it’s flight.
The Muybridge 2 part series was a seemingly effortless and perfect interpretation of the merging of the 2ndand 3rd dimensions translating the motion of birds in flight while capturing fractional movement.
