me technicolour dreamcoat

inspired by the ‘façade’ book project on recycled advertising billboards, which i’ve just completed (more on that later) i recently decided to have a go myself and thought it would be fun to try and make a ‘recycled’ jacket, to wear at the book launch next week, the billboard was kindly donated by my friends at ‘koeweiden postma’ who had recently used this large red and white one to welcome a client who had moved into an adjacent office space… the jacket was very kindly made (with considerable effort and many broken needles) by my wife’s aunt ‘agnes eenenaam’ (thanks again!) and arrived back this week… looks kinda funky he? well i think so…

although it turns out that the book launch is taking place on a different day than expected, so i’ll miss it unfortunately and the jacket is actually so stiff that it’s almost impossible to move in! still it was good fun to try and i now have a much better idea how to produce a new version in the future and what materials do or don’t work…
