Textural inspiration for a material installation...

My main idea for the Mary Greg project is to create a material installation,which can be projected onto,that people can walk into and feel as though they are being transported around the off- access areas of platt hall. The film will include close up images of the material of the dresses in the collection,as this is one of my main focuses and the installation would be hand sown using fragile almost transparent and withered yet heavily layered material,inspired by the images i captured of the thin night dresses and lace. i have just learnt how to use a sewing machine and also different hand-stitching techniques and have been experimenting with layering of material,i prefer hand-stitching as i can manipulate the material. I have always been interested in creating fragile,almost slightly ugly and withered looking pieces using white and cream material with other materials.
