White T: Fractal

 
A model shows the front of the garment: eight white triangular panels, five solid fabric and three latticed with smaller triangles. The model’s face is not visible, fading into the black background.

In this project, I took a single $5 white T-Shirt and modified it through cutting, gluing, and applying several different finishes. The aim of this piece is to emphasize symmetry by viewing the human body as a single mass. In using the body as a frame on which to hang a tessellated geometric garment, hundreds of lines of symmetry are introduced and composed over the wearer.
