Over the last few months I have begun exploring using costumes as I way to imagine being a character in a story. In the photograph above I have made a full circle skirt like those in the pictures of the Mary Wigmans dancers, who I had been reading about. I put on the outfit, pretended to be one of them and when I felt comfortable, asked someone to take a photograph of me in it.

I have found this wonderful recent photograph of Francoise Gilot in her home and would love to recreate it, the images above are the beginning of a fabric pattern.

Images not mine are from here
