Flat rectangle tunic
A rectangular piece of fabric with a T-shaped cut for the head hangs from the shoulders. Apart from the T-shaped opening, the only cuts are two straight, horizontal cuts directed towards the fundamental green armpit points. The garment is two- dimensional in that it is completely at with no shaping or depth in the construction. This experiment visualises and connects kinetic garment constructions to ancient rectangular garment construction, showing how gravity a ects the fabric and how balance is achieved in the garment when the fabric at the front of the body is conected to the fabric at the back.
