Y1T3 Outerwear Project

This project is inspired by the portrayal of death and its meaninglessness in Stanley Kubrick films. Colour and textures are inspired by his late film Full Metal Jacket, contrasted with aboriginal and oceanian art symbolising life and celebration of death as a new beginning. The flag, the accessory is tied around the models wrists symbolising the Vietnam war and the loss of control over a life and a future as shown in Full Metal Jacket. It is decorated with symbols of hope and a Native American bird symbol stitched into it as a sign of welcoming and hope. Lined wool jacket and accessory; wool, polyester knit, lining fabric, wood, acrylic and oil paint.
