Three hundred and sixty degrees : a celebration of costume technology
MetadataShow full item record
Three Hundred and Sixty Degrees: A Celebration of Costume Technology was an immersive theatrical installation piece that integrated physical costume pieces, three hundred and sixty degree projection mapping, digital storytelling, and an original musical composition comprised of sounds found in a costume shop. The purpose of the story was to give an artistic overview of the essential steps in a garment's creation. It allowed the audience to view and experience the evolution of how a theatrical costume is constructed, beginning with the designer's rendering, then moving into the muslin half-drape, the paper pattern, the fitting, the pattern pieces cut in real fabric, and ending with the completed garment. The installation also focused on the role played by historical undergarments (created here in half scale) as the building blocks of costume construction.
