Vineetha Sivathasan: “Per-formation”

Created by Daniels Faculty student Vineetha Sivathasan, this film project was part of the thesis prep portion of a research option studio taught by Associate Professor John Shnier in the winter semester of 2015.

In Vineetha’s words, “The intent of this video was to look at form and space based anticipation that is created with the layering of a combination of interests. This combination consists of the idea of a line that forms a body, and the fabric that clothes this body. I wanted to explore how the essence of being clothed could be translated to architectural form making. The interconnectedness of mutilation of fabric to the mutation of space experimented in this video. Furthermore, my thesis research site – the Textile Museum of Canada – played a role in inspiring the content of the video.”
