Third year project from Design School Kolding (2003).
In interpretation of a national costume from Outer Mongolia. The original costume was brought home to Denmark by five Danish explorers who traveled there in the late 1930s. The costume is on display today at The National Museum in Copenhagen. The National Museum was very cooperative in my reseach - thank you. The interpretation was displayed at The National Museum in an exhibition in 2007. The orginal costume contains many symbols of prosperity and luck. For the project we were only allowed to use one material. I found that supermarket adverts had some of the same signal values and colourfullness that I saw in the costume.
