Why Do People Cover Things?

The meaning of people’s action to ‘cover’ can be interpreted diversely depending on personal, political, cultural and social situations.
By making 3 different provocative and intriguing pieces of ‘home-wears’, I have been stimulated by the objects and aesthetics of a table, kitchen and a shower booth. These areas are personal zones of safety for me, so to transform them into garments and be able to wear them in uncomfortable situations, is reassuring. One could change the perception of covering objects and by doing this, change our behavior toward that person/object that has been covered. This has been analysed in five different ways: to protect, to conceal, for comfort, to transform perception of an object and to personalise.
To find out the potential meaning of covering the question is posed, how does covering objects change its parameters?
