These images are from my college project 'Open/Close'. I chose to explore zippers alone and their relationship with the body. As an opening and closing I began to use them metaphorically in my sketchbook development. I made this shirt out of sheer organza to represent the delicacy of skin, the heavy zips as a way of controlling emotions and thoughts we allow in and out, though even those of us with 'thick skin' can find this a difficult task.
