The Female Figure: Patch Project
Today I have finally got going on some ideas I have had brewing for some time and word has started spreading.
With my research into women, and all things related, I am keen to promote and go further in depth into body image. To do this, I am looking for participants of all ages and backgrounds to send me a 4inch fabric patch to express their thoughts and feelings about their body image. I have already collected some patches, so the project is on it's way and making haste with getting more people participating and talking body image.
Alongside the patches, I am also looking to collect stories from participants- email or post me your experiences. I want to collect thoughts, ideas and the journey that women and men go through with their body. This is for everyone, however uncreative you think are! Share with others- sisters, brothers, mothers, aunts, uncles, friends, colleagues etc!
The brief for the project is on my main website , downloadable as a PDF. Spread word amongst all female acquaintances: the more patches and stories, the better!
