Ornament Against Crime: Shadow Obscurer
Walking through a crowded city street at night is much more disorientating than one might first think, we are surrounded by movement, noise and obstacles.
Streetlights are scattered around us, shop windows and headlights cascade a blur of shadows that we are unable decipher.
My ornament incorporates these elements, by attaching it at various points around the body our outline transforms, projecting an image that cannot be translated as a human figure. The ability to blend into the bustling nighttime streets of London offers many possibilities to the criminal mind.
