When given the assignment to make the biggest skirt during my first semester in the Apparel department at RISD, I set out to explore the idea of taking up space by creating large, wearable masses aiming to occupy the maximum amount of space possible. Through exploration of materials such as polyfill and metal boning, I became interested in stacking and chose to make a series of layers which stack on top of one another in order to create a large mass. Looking to children’s toys for inspiration, I began thinking about play and interactivity in the dressing process. This project was ultimately documented through a performance video, modeled by artist Max Bell.​​​​​​​
