This course extends students’ understanding of 3D form as it relates directly to the body, the space around the body, and the way that materials interact with the human form. Students explore the silhouette, gesture, movement, and function and create body coverings, adornments, and extensions using a diverse range of materials. The history and social context of wearables help to inform student projects.
