Life is motion in time. Our aspirations rise, our moods ebb and flow, and our clothes should capture the changes, expressing the pulse of the body as they meet the forces of the environment.
This is how clothes can become an assertion of identity and character. The wearer moves through a lifetime of movements and moments, and her clothes move - literally and figuratively – to complement mind and body.
Such concepts were made strikingly visual to me when I first experienced the moving sculptures of Peter Jansen. His works open our perception to motion as an endless sequence of still moments, each one a subtle shift from the one before. We see beyond the dancer or the runner as human figures and discover the power that carries their bodies moment by moment through time and space.
