The video is one of a series of videos which followed the development of 10 dresses, a collaboration between designer, educator, artist Martha Skinner of 10^10 with garment designer Brooke Priddy of Ship to Shore designed for the 10^10 Blow Out event which took place last October. The event was a fundraiser to support 10^10's mission and simple design ideas which have exponential effects on our environment and humanity. To learn about 10^10 and its mission visit http://www.10to10.org
With 10 triangles of increasing sizes, arranged in 10 different ways, 10 unique dresses are created. Each dress is made in short playful sessions in different locations, and as process/performances they approached the space of the event as the outcome of the process was revealed. The 10 dresses, based on one pattern, are an example of what can potentially generate thousands of unique designs and to represent 10^10's mission of the exponential power of design.
Sound Piece by Elisa Fares is composed using a Balinese pentatonic scale; in which five different notes derived from 10 are used.
These unique dresses will be on sale at Ship to Shore's Annual Studio Sale on Saturday, December 10 at 10:00 a.m. 428 A Haywood, West Asheville, NC. http://www.facebook.com/shiptoshoreshop?sk=wall A portion of the proceeds will support 10^10's mission.
