Cutting Edge

This was a sideproject of She Man. Yelena wanted to create a symbolic material for her collection. For this she decided to cut up women's undergarments. The idea was to create a thread to use in knitting garments. This material is suggested in the drawings of the collection. The creation of this thread became an ongoing performance in public transport. Yelena used to do the cutting on her way to and from school between Rotterdam and Utrecht.
