Description

Grid was an auxiliary device used for depicting an object with perspective in the Renaissance era. However, in the 20th century’s modernist art, grid was objectified as the most basic form creating a figure rather than a device for representation. Besides, in the postmodernism, grid ‘reference absent and narrative impossible (Krauss, R. 1981)’ ensured autonomy of art freed from tradition and custom of the past. This project was planned with a view to creating a new type of dress independent of tradition and custom of dress by pleating to form a grid and repetition. Repetition performed by the grid must follow the actual and empirical surface of the work. As shown from Rosalind Krauss above, with an act of repetition or replication as the “original” occasion of its usage, the extended life of the grid in the unfolding progression of the work will be one of still more repetition (Krauss, R. 1981). This dress was designed to form a grid in the side by overlapping the radial front and the back created with sun burst pleated transparent polyester organza through a transparent dress form. Meanwhile, radial shapes on the front and the back emphasize a direction spreading to space and express sublimity and infinity.
