Outrospection . The Body and Mind

is a project by Colombian designer and fashion artist Daniel Ramos Obregón. He graduated in 2014 from the renowned MA Fashion Artefact at London College of Fashion, UAL. He did his BA in Communication Design at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia and went abroad to the textile department at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010. His work deals with different notions of the ‘self’; the way we identify ourselves as and the embodiment of these constructs within our physical bodies.

“This project has taken as a starting point the concept of “Outrospection” initially introduced by philosopher Roman Kznaric, where he proposes that in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, it is be experiencing life that one discovers and shapes oneself. I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent -in a metaphorical way- the mind being projected inwards out of the body as a way of self-expresion and representation. The collection has been hand crafted out of porcelain body casts, gold plated brass metal frames that encompass the body, hand turned Colombian kingwood handles and vegetable-tanned leather harnesses.”
