Cinderella's Illuminated GownIssue: XX.2 March + April 2013
Cinderella's Illuminated Gown is a time-based installation that unravels the interstitial state of transformation and ephemeral nature of Cinderella's gown. The project focuses on the role of Cinderella's gown as a portal between the ordinary and the extraordinary. The installation combines a sewn bodice, interwoven with LEDs, with variably illuminated fiber optics, creating a visual effect of a fluid, in-between state, where the gown is suspended between magical ephemera and functional object. Cinderella's fabled gown is expressed as a tangible representation of magic.
