We will speculate upon sustainability, respect towards the material itself, the production of textiles and their further process to create clothing, and how most diverse handling of these subjects developed in different cultures and habitats. Starting from the flat material, the textile, the body is enveloped to create a three-dimensional shell.

A concept of shaping will be found to develop a series of body enclosures, called clothing. Each individual solution functions as a module that can be applied systemically in a variety of ways to form a collection. The collection will be photographed inpromptu and presented performativ. A competition will be juried and awarded.

In the beginning the material, for example the textile, is flat and rectangular. It is only through the processing that it is brought into shape and becomes spatial. The aim is to coat the body with the twodimensional material and to create a three-dimensional shell.

The inspiration for this are the cultures that have treated the material with respect and produced as little waste as possible. Textile was not cut up, as is usual in our country, in order to create a hollow form of the body, but it was left in its independence. In Asian traditions, as in India or Japan, and also here in antiquity, the textile was used to coat the body, and could, taken from the body, be stretched back into the flat surface. There was no waste or left-overs.

The focus is on form finding under given conditions how to work with the material. The aim is to develop a concept for the moulding and to design a series of covers, called a collection, produced in 1:1 size, photographed inpromptu and then presented in a instagram story. The collections will be juried and awarded.

The material can be folded, gathered or flared, it can be cut, slit or punched, or it can be woven, interwoven or interlocked. Nevertheless, it remains a rectangular piece of fabric, just as the textile comes from the manufacturing process, e.g. from the loom. In order to wrap the material around the body, easy connecting or fastening elements can be attached, such as Velcro or safety pins. The cloth can be knotted or wrapped, rolled or tied.

Provided Material can be aquired against a small amount. There will be a choice of: flowing, stretchy textile such as jersey; foamed, selfcontained material similar to foam rubber; and a foldable, rigid, shaperetaining material such as tyvek or tull.
