“The Hyacinth Macaw”: America Through the Broken Looking Glass
by Pilon-Toppings, Vivianne, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 11; 1517763
Abstract (Summary)

Taking inspiration from fantasy novels and historic photography, I desired to create a reality that was a tilted version of our own. The imagery of a broken mirror followed me through the creative process and I was able to conceive costumes that were inspired by our own clothing but with a twist. My goal was to give the audience a sense that they were travelling to a peculiar world that was deceivingly familiar.
