Design Academy Eindhoven | department Identity 2009.
The ‘Zuiderzee museum’ gave the department the assignment to design something with the old basketry techniques.
Iris chose ‘hair’ as the base material. Hair is a very important part of your own identity, it is your own growing material.
Beside that Iris was caught by the story of the women who stayed at home while the men were fishing at sea (Zuiderzee).
They stay at home care and doing their householding in the costume and hairstyle specific in every village around the Zuiderzee.
Iris researched costumes and hair styles of the past and nowadays and make this in a photoserie who tell a story.
These pictures were part of the exhibition ‘Gone with the wind / Gejaagd door de wind’ in the ‘Zuiderzee museum’.
