Material Stories


An autobiographical exploration into the stories and memories held within wear to our garments.

A custom made uniform, produced in collaboration with Per Gotesson, was worn over a 2 month period, and the wear to the uniform was recorded and sketched from memory into the diary. Accompanying the sketches is a diary entry relating to the memory stored in the wear.

The cover depicts the silhouette of bacteria grown from samples taken from the uniform. New life grown from old stories.

Uniform designed by Callum Baylis and produced by Per Gotesson.Cyanotype on calico.
