The Concise Dictionary of Dress
Judith Clark commissioned me to contribute to a couple of installations... one of which was a nude Victorian collage image that was projected as a 'Pepper's Ghost' effect onto a Victorian dress, and the above image is another very small contribution to the many curiosities at this new exhibition:

"The imposing monolith of Blythe House has since 1978 been the quiet repository for the V&A's reserve collections of furniture, ceramics, glass, jewellery, textiles, fashion and fine arts.
Located within its vast spaces, The Concise Dictionary of Dress begins as you navigate a turnstile, cross a corridor and take the industrial goods lift up to the top floor. A wrought iron staircase leads you out onto the roof towards an exposed cupola containing the first of a sequence of intriguing definitions in a walk-through dictionary of dress."
