Integrative Studio 1: Bridge 2 Project

Character Description – Arden

As a group, we all prefer to wear oversized clothes in our daily lives (such as, an oversized hoodie or jacket) because it allows us to be comfortable. For this reason, we all agreed to make a piece of clothing that is oversized.  In addition to the oversized hoodie, we will also create a long cape attached to the hoodie that will symbolize a superhero character. We got inspired by the neon art room at the Club 57 museum (class trip during int. studio). Thus, we will be using neon colors on the black fabric to make a bold statement, symbolizing the character’s real self. The character we created is a young adult named Arden. He is a undercover superhero which is a normal human during the day and a outgoing, bold superhero at night. But, at the same time, the cape also acts as a cover to hide his real identity and personality to the people around him. As a group, we equally contributed to the art piece. In process of creating the garment, we divided the garment into different sections – lights, hoodie, and cape. The materials involved a mesh, translucent black fabric and a foam, spongey black fabric. More importantly, we used small wired lights to enhance the garment to stand out.
