The Green Line is inspired by notable landscapes, environmental art, gardens, and fashions. This series uses a combination of live plant materials, water systems and designed patterns and forms of fashions, as well as a conventional fashion element of the design being able to be worn by a person. The wearable artworks grows with living greenery while commenting and re-interpreting what landscapes are, as well as what they can be with a new perspective.
Typically, people walk through or interact with designed spaces. However, in this artwork, the wearing of the green fashion is the needed interaction for the piece to come to life and respond to the person wearing it, as well as the people at the events and exhibits.
This series uses plants which are edible, flowering plants, and unusual greenery in fashions which are seeded with self-seeding plants, irrigated, mulched and wearable. When put in an installation (short or long term), indoor spaces are transformed and dialogues of indoor/outdoor materials and spaces are put into question. Additionally, whether this be indoors or outdoors- with the pieces changing through growth, the space continues to change. A fashion show in which models wear the creations is also a consideration for the series.
Today, 23 December 2011, the first flower, a cosmos, has bloomed on the Opera Gown- the first fashion of the Green Line!!!
