Inspiration: Symbolic meaning of clothes
This video of a blogger has the message: ”Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have”. If you want to be something else, you have to clothe and behave like that to feel what it could be like. It shows that clothes might be part of our identity, too and that they influence our point of view. Nowadays clothes became a huge part in our life because they somehow impress our personality. But they also can evoke imaginations and this is something we want to use for our project. Of course the people should not think about their personal wish for the future but for the future of Genk but in the next step we want to ask them if they could imagine to take part in THIS future. So the clothes will be signs for what could be the next step for Genk in general but maybe the people will also see a possible work-future for themselves.
In addition to that the video at the bottom is also interesting for us. In this video a young woman plays a game with those who watches her videos. Because the viewer has always to decide for categories and clothes in order to get to the next video. The result is a complete outfit.
We also want to give the people in Genk enough clothes to chose, so that we do not lead them into a direction.
