Gypsy Ames: Sugar, Sugar

127 E. Bijou

“This costume was originally created for the I.D.E.A. Space “Sugar” exhibit in the Cornerstone Arts Building. The costume is an interpretation of a sugar crystal as it might look hugely expanded and inhabited by a sentient presence. The challenge with this costume was to interpret these shapes and visually represent them in a 3D sculptural form around the body.  To my eye, the art form of origami echoed the lines and facets of the sugar crystals and served as a methodology for building the costume. “
