CYLINDRUS

‘The Cylindrus Project’ is a series of cylindrical explorations expressed through the mediums of animation, clothing and film.

The development of the project was spurred by a fixation with cylinders, and the organic movement created by rolling one over one another. By experimenting with this movement, a method of design evolved, consisting of linking single cylinders together, building dynamic forms. This system of separating and joining cylinders was articulated through an animation with Martin Coghlan. Using the 3-dimensional workspace that animation provides, we were able experiment with the method to explore a multiplicity of design outcomes. This collaboration encouraged a different level of engagement with the work, that would prove valuable in the building of garments. Using the method uncovered by the animation, I embraced this new technique and applied it to making garments. By applying this unique way of working, I was able to leave traditional patternmaking behind, and eliminate any predetermined outcomes. A single unbroken cylinder began a series of six dynamic forms on the body, where each outfit documented a stage of growth until a repeated mass of cylinders engulfed the body. A film, Cylinder/Cylindrical, produced by Jess Nojoo marks the conclusion of the project. The film documents a metamorphosis of the cylinder with the body, through a series of strong shape-changing silhouettes.

SEPARATING

Cylindrus Animations A collaboration with Martin Coghlan These animations were shown at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2010. Animation enabled me to concentrate the audiences attention solely to the technique of the cylindrical movements. The elimination of the garment when working in this 3D workspace made the key focus how the cylinders reacted and collaborated together which highlighted the process I explored extensively through my development. The use of animation allowed me to further my exploration beyond the limitation of clothing and push my ideas of interconnection and fluidity of a garment.
