    “poetry in motion”

    Written language is powerful tool for private communication as well as public propaganda. How would you feel about displaying words that hold meaning on your body?

    In this workshop you will receive a commission for a “poetry in motion” jacket from somebody. They will provide you with a poem that holds meaning to them, and you will translate this into a garment.
