Critique Reflection – After seeing everyone’s projects, how is art different when the body is included? How did making this project wearable/integrated into the body make it different from the 1:1 cardboard object project? Is it “performance?” “Fashion?” “Freak show?” “Art?”
art becomes different when the body is included because it makes it feel more interactive. unlike other project that we have completed, this one actually interacts with a real, living thing instead of just sitting on a table or hanging from the ceiling. this project being wearable made it different from the 1:1 project because it was something that could be interacted with. the 1:1 project was just of inanimate object, but integrating the body to it almost gives it a sense of life. i think that the wearable pieces could have been fashion, art, or even a freak show. some of them almost looked like odd creatures while others were just pretty to look at and some had an actual purpose to wearing them.
