The Subculture Project
by Moya Thomas
Thomas has created The Subculture Project by gathering clothes from different subcultures including Teds, Mods, Rockers and Punks.
Select your subculture off the rack and try it on! The clothes are tagged and as you wander around the gallery space, you will come into range and your clothes will play you tunes representing your chosen subculture.
“We can be a mod one day and a punk the next without subscribing to the ideology. This project explores how today’s technology pervades our youth culture and is a major source of expression” says Thomas, “…it enables the ‘ground floor’ expressions (clothes), to become hijacked and turned into commodities.”
The exhibition also features a projection work of Moya’s own experiences exploring clothing from subcultures on a day to day basis.
