Thomas (pictured below with Cassie) tries on a paper coat for the piece. It was modeled after John Muir’s coat, and was made by attaching pages from books to a blazer. It looked great on Thomas, but unfortunately its not quite right for the piece. We’ve had to let go of a number of ideas and sections we created as we start to put the piece together, but often the ideas we let go of are the ones that reemerge in different places. I have a feeling this coat will make an appearance in something we do down the line–I’d love to see Thomas do a solo in the coat because of the different quality the stiff paper gives his movement.
