    Our project was to create a dress inspired by a white hole. The final product represents a white hole in many ways. To be symbolic, it is made out of white felt. Then we added many cut-outs of random shapes. These shapes are supposed to symbolize pieces of the planet that the white hole creates. Using that idea, we made a one shoulder sash out of similar shapes to show the white hole pushing out and creating a planet. This sash is functional but also voluminous and looks as if it is from outer space. The side of our dress has ovular wire and felt shapes that are supposed to be a white hole, and the dress is what the white hole has created (a planet). These ovals continue behind the dress to make the entire dress interesting to view, but also extend the white hole implications. Overall, our dress turned out well. Through many iterations, we were able to make a sculptural dress that represented the white hole from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
