My project is split into 4 stages for easier navigation and understanding. As in a marathon, begin at stage 1 and keep going until the of stage 4. After stage 1 please watch the video "WINDERMERE RESEARCH VIDEO".
MY WORK AIMS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE UGLINESS OF LITTERING IN OUR SOCIETY.
Introduction, Aims, Context and Beyond
This stage of this marathon journey focuses on setting the scene. In here you will learn more about me, motives and why I am doing a masters degree. It sets the context for the rest of the journey establishing the underpinned message and forming the narrative itself. You can experience my initial experimental workings leading to my success in a global design competition. It is important you read this chapter first in order to understand the rest.
Windermere Research Video
Must Watch this before continuing further
This research video captures the research in its context and forms the foundations for stages 2, 3 & 4.
It's all about the jacket
This stage focuses on identifying new opportunities for personalisation within mens tailored jackets, focusing primarily on canvas work and digital printed shells, based on the litter identified when competing in the Brathay Windermere Marathon 2019.
The Running Man Mannequin & Rats
Stage 3 explores the concept of creating a transparent bespoke exhibition form to display the tailored jackets internal and external faces simultaneously. To further develop the narrative and build a disturbing sense of warning, this stage also explores the representation of vermin as a consequence to human behaviours.
Windermere Embroidered Tapestry
The final stage of the marathon concludes in this book. Here you can witness the development and outcome of working collaboratively with the Sheffield Embroiderers Guild to create a 26.2ft embroidered tapestry representing the litter found at each mile mark around Lake Windermere during the Brathay Windermere marathon 2019.
