This project was inspired by, and designed around original documents that supported the corset and orthopedic appliance industry from the late 19th century through the early 20th century. From the description of the correct angles for the body, to correcting or enhancing female curves, a woman’s body didn’t appear to be her own domain, with so many opinions assessing her deportment. Unfortunately these discussions seem to be continuing, although with updated language, as a woman’s body is constantly being defined, and even still – confined, for the sake of a “proper” appearance. NOTE: This video has no sound.
