Extracting dye from mistletoe and its host (eucalypt and casurina) in order to screenprint and dye fabric formed the starting point of this work. From here a three-in-one garment was constructed, each wearer connected to the next via the sleeves.
Once inside the garment the wearers no longer have full control or autonomy of their movements. If one wishes to move in a particular direction the co-operation of her fellow wearers must be garnered, while certain movements are no longer possible within the constraints of the garment. Where does this leave the wearer, is this a space of frustration or possibility? How are one’s actions affected by and effecting the environment and others? Through this three-in-one garment a heightened dependence and interconnectedness is articulated – which, while delimiting possibilities, is not necessarily a negative constraint.
