IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND, I HAD TO DESTROY MYSELF

Uniform of Great Hope takes its outcome in the melancholic state between dystopia and utopia, and is a secluded journey in to an annihilated mans seek on finding the great hope.

The inspiration is a mixture of references to the late 30s cold flatlands of Ostrobothnia when the Finns was fighting the Russian superior in Talvisota, combined with elements from scientific studies in bacterial life. This has caused a chemical orientated approach to the collection identity, and especially to the development of the fabric composition.

The collections idiom and shape-evolvement is found in the synthesis of representation and manipulation, and is created through build anatomical grotesque figures, where details, lines and spaces have appeared, and got analyzed and transformed.
