Rites of Passage

Helsinki @ Media Lab Helsinki 

Rites of Passage is a cooperation project with Media Lab Helsinki and Textile Art, Fashion and Clothing Design department at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. The idea is to create audiovisual story out of the material from the NEiD 2008 (fashion, jewelry and textile design). The theme is rites of passage: birth, wedding and death and the basic idea is to visualize a fashion show with a new and a unique way.
