Sewing Subjectivities considers the costume atelier as live performance, an experimental and comfortable space in which we support each other's impulses as we react to a kit of materials and sewing tools.
Pre-made costume "outlines", crude introductory forms, are readapted, reacted to, cut, folded and added to during a series of improvised sessions. Roles switch as we each have a chance to be either the model or designer. Each participant experiences it in their own way and these characteristics are, quite literally, built into the costumes. 
While editing, I became increasingly aware of the authority I had in selecting what was and wasn't included in the final cut. Critical of this, I revisited the 'Warm up' video and selected frames that were previously discarded as a way of "un-editing" myself.
