Abstract [en]

The motive of this work is to illustrate and visualize the socio-political objectification of the female body, in order to suggest explanations as to how female body standards are derived as a result of this objectification. The objective was obtained by exploring cut and assembling designs with powerful visual expressions, with sustainability as a point of emphasis. As the result 8 shapes were created out of one single pattern formula, the formula that would probably never be discovered if the starting point were not a fragile cork material.
