Abstract or Description

What might sewing and wearing your research bring to an understanding of mobility, gendered citizenship, and the changing nature of public space? This is one of the questions at the core of my research about Victorian women’s cycle wear. For the past two years I have been literally getting into my work and inviting others to do the same through sewing workshops, show-tell-and-try-on events, curated bicycle rides, exhibitions, and costumed performances. This project considers design not only as subject matter, but also method of investigation and mode of knowledge transmission.
