Body Pressure

The story of project ‘Body Pressure’ comes from the deepest parts of human bodies and minds. Often we feel in a way trapped in different systems that surround us, so we do everything that is in our power to protect our identities. Our body is the main tool we can lean on.

The materials used are very unconventional and not so common in clothing. The bandages represent the protection we use when we need to heal ourselves, polyvinyl shows a reflection of the society, and prints of stoppers are a mixture of every feeling we feel, good or bad. “Body Pressure” represents the concept in a very raw, industrial, but still natural way.
