Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Fabricating identity in Southern California
by Cloutier, Khara M., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 9; 1527686
Abstract (Summary)

Clothing serves as material evidence of the mental space we occupy. My designs are inspired by the man-made landscapes that surround me and I apply those patterns to the landscape of the body.

Like graphic design, fashion is a medium employed to convey messages and ideas. It is an expression of identity that is established through color, form, pattern and texture. My work seeks to synthesize human geography with graphic design in order to clothe the body and thus, fabricate identity.
