|Natalie Purschwitz - Day 360|
MakeShift is an art and research project that examines the relationships between 'making', 'clothing' and 'living'. The basic premise for the project is that for a period of one year starting on September 1st, 2009, I will only wear things that I have made myself. Initially this may seem like a reasonable task, but it will include all of my clothes, socks, shoes, underwear, coats, jackets, hats, bathing suits, accessories and anything else I might need to protect my body from the elements while trying to lead a fulfilling life.
I told you about Natalie Purschwitz's 365 day project, MakeShift, before. Her year of wearing and using only self handmade clothing and accessories is drawing to a close. She has made some wonderful items and I still find the entire project incredibly inspiring. Perhaps some day I will have the know-how, dedication and ability to do similarly.
