An unfinished collection of experiments for disappearing my body in public space
Camouflage is a visual language and technology of concealment--to camouflage is to hide and hide that you are hiding.
I am hiding all year round is a wardrobe of full-body camouflage suits based on where I live, made using a homemade pattern software I built. With garments for fall, winter, summer, and spring, I can adapt to the color palettes of each season and hide all year long. These experiments use camouflage as a literal and embodied metaphor for refusing to be legible.
Embedded below, I am hiding all year round (and you can, too) is a browser-based tool for generating patterns from photographs of places. It rips off designs from a Norwegian research paper focused on creating camouflage for urban and suburban spaces (which the study fittingly refers to as "theatres"). Sampling a color palette from an uploaded image, the pattern generator can create two types of camouflage that can be edited and downloaded from the site.
Try generating your own camouflage by uploading an photograph. None of your data is saved or shared.
