X-PANSE

This project explores the relationship between a bully victim and their bully. In thinking about the interactions people (children, teenagers, and even adults) have with each other, we know that bullying plays a part in social hierarchies. Bullying can have adverse effects on the victims, oftentimes making them feel scared to be themselves and hopeless that they can do anything to better their situation. Others can intervene but typically people choose not to. This project utilizes fashion and technology to exemplify internalized feelings of needing to protect one’s self and bring awareness to the issue of bullying.
