Mother Earth

Jessica Horst's avatar Jessica Horst

This will be an installation of five to seven artistic garments. Each will be constructed almost entirely out of wool through felting - a way to make fabric. Each will be a seamless dress depicting the biomes of the planet: ocean, freshwater, rainforest, forest, desert, savannah, and tundra. Each will be complex in their undertaking, each with their own signature look and representation. Just like 'Rainforest' will be made of a varience of greens, whose textural form will equivilate the leafy structures that reside there. Or like 'Ocean' will exhibit soft, airy flecks of water foam atop a gown of waves and 'bubbles' and swirls of blues and whites. Each will be bold in their display. Their trains will be lavish, their dresses akin to none. And all will have their own mannequin, painted white, save for their eyes. Their eyes will be nearly as colorful as the garments that they represent. Intermingled together on display, all will celebrate this wondrous planet that we call home.
