MakeShift is an art and research project that examines the relationships between 'making', 'clothing' and 'living'.
In the words of its creator, Natalie Purschwitz: "The basic premise for the project is that for a period of one year starting on September 1st, 2009, I will only wear things that I have made myself. Initially this may seem like a reasonable task, but it will include all of my clothes, socks, shoes, underwear, coats, jackets, hats, bathing suits, accessories and anything else I might need to protect my body from the elements while trying to lead a fulfilling life."
Everytime I look at what she has created - yes, all those lovely clothes, and yes, those funky shoes... its so fascinating and enriching!
