'Blendscapes' by Elsien Gringhuis
“Despite the amount of visitors you barely feel that there are other people on the island than you. You can move around without meeting anyone and thus disappear into the landscape. That feeling was the reason for a series of five outfits where you can literally blend into the landscape. ”
The designs of the garments are an abstraction of the landscapes of Schiermonnikoog. We incorporated the photographs of the islander landscapes into the garments as prints. By photographing the garments in the exact same landscapes, we created ‘BLENDSCAPES’.
