In collaboration with Lena Winterink
OZONE, a trioxygen, also written as O3, is a blue gas formed by UV-light, creating a semi-transparent layer around the earth. ⠀
The work consists of three garments representing atmospheres that can be felt during physical distance, while reflecting on yourself and the space around you. Considering our breath is one of the reasons we need to keep distance towards others; the element air is an overall theme that gives lightness in our collection. By using texture, materials and print, the pieces are divided in three themes: volume, transparency, and serenity.⠀⠀
The first piece shows a light volume of textile that expands the space around the wearer. The second is creating a protective separation towards others remaining transparent. The third is a print created with UV-light, resulting in the colour blue, which is considered beneficial to the mind and body and going mentally inwards.
