Project: BOOMSHIRT (2010)

Description:�Think, intervene and send�. In the Boomshirt project, a shirt was passed between 3 designers, each intervening on it independently and then sending it to the next designer; with the last designer sending it back to the curators of a Boomshirt exposition during Estoril Fashionart Festival in Portugal.

I participated in this project together with Daniela Pais and Wieteke Opmeer. With inspiration drawn from the projects motto � WE HAVE POWER � a trail of energy poles and a cables forming �power line� have been drawn and embroidered on the shirt starting from the waist and ending on the top chest button � hinting at the hidden use of the lamp on the main shit pocket.

The shirt was made into a lamp, but with a limited amount of energy only, urging the wearer to use his �pocket lamp� only when necessary and to preserve the energy that the shirt has.

I have also chosen to interact and emphasize Wieteke�s statement about silk(prev. intervention) by giving the lamp a shape that together with the patterns of Wieteke�s dyed silk pockets created a light image of a cocoon that reminds us where does silk come from and the life that it had once preserved
