pretty big shirt
Concept development and design of a 10 x 6 x 6 meter t-shirt as part of the ‘Freezing Favela’ exhibition at Mediamatic.
With Thijs van Himbergen
For the Mediamatic Freezing Favela exhibition in Amsterdam, Thijs van Himbergen and I (and our moms) stitched together a 10 meter tall t-shirt. Inside it we gave workshops based on the idea that searching for perfection is futile and no fun.
We also experimented with various drawing and printing techniques, and different states to be in when using them. We made pretty nice stuff, and that’s okay. It’s relaxing not to aim too high, and besides, things may paradoxically become more awesome when you’re not trying be too awesome. Or they may not, of course, but who cares?
