CIP – Beyond Limits – Oskar Schlemmer – Research

Creative Industry Practice

I have been researching costumes made by Oskar Schlemmer, this is not really the way I see my project heading but I like the bizarreness  of his costumes, in a way it fits with what I’m trying to accomplish by building on the idea of the uncanny.

There’s something unnerving about Schlemmer’s designs, upon first glance they seem to be very complex, however when I started to really look at the costumes they are actually quite simple. I have benefited from this research in a kind of indirect way, it’s not the way the costumes are made that has helped me, but its the utter weirdness of them. I want to create something that’s nearly normal whilst being pretty odd, resembling some kind of hyperreality.
