Step 1:

Five dangers to protect yourself from:

  • Gunfire
  • Burning buildings
  • Toxic gases
  • Depressing thoughts
  • Wild animals

Five ways to extend human capabilities:

  • Bird wings (capable of flight)
  • Invisibility cloak
  • Air mask for deepwater diving
  • Metal arm sleeves (increase strength)
  • Soundproof headgear

The main idea that I am going to focus on for the wearable art project is to create wearable bird wings designed to human scale that would make human beings capable of flying in the air. I chose to create this design because I believe that many people have fanaticized about having the ability to fly, and I would like to design an artwork based on what the ideal clothing item would look like as I know it can be a popular item. This clothing item is not designed to actually give humans the ability to fly; it is simply a representation of what the clothing item would look like integrated with bird wings. The main purpose why I chose to pursue giving humans the ability to fly is because the clothing item would represent freedom. The laws of physics and gravity would not be able to limit the ideas that stem from human imagination. I also see this clothing item as a metaphor supporting the people who live their lives today with limited freedom due to their status and social position in society.

10 items associated with the purpose of the project:

  • Bird wings
  • Freedom
  • Jetpack
  • Parachutes
  • Christmas Reindeer
  • Planes
  • Witches Broomstick
  • Balloons
  • Paper airplane
  • Hang gliders
