garmentMetamorphosis series was created as an interactive installation. The installation put the participants through a series of surreal environments. The environments and the wearables contain micro and macro images taken from nature. In the space the participants were given space to discover their place in this environment with the new garment they embody. The garments corresponded to the space that they were put in and are inspired by different children's games to invite adults to play in a new surreal world.
