AMALGAM amalgam (n.) - A combination of diverse elements; a mixture. My thesis will explore the concept of collage...I am interested in the effects and new meanings that can result from taking things apart and putting them back together in unexpected ways. One approach I would take is to create an online outfit generator where one could upload photographs of pieces of clothing from their own wardrobe. The site would then create outfits using these pieces. By automating and randomizing the process of choosing an outfit to wear, a new outlook on oneâ€™s own wardrobe, and the clothing combinations possible, could be achieved.

Back to basics - Create a series of collages that question relationships and make interesting new compositions by taking things apart and putting them back together in unexpected ways. By hand and/or digitally done using images and/ or text.
Document someoneâ€™s wardrobe in photographs and map out and show visually the many different possibilities of clothing combinations. Then figure out how many of the combinations are successful in terms of wearability, practicality, and personal style.
Start to create a brand identity for the outfit generating website including logo designs and preliminary wireframes, as well as the typefaces, colors, and aesthetic to be used.
