Inspired by the fashion industry and its ability to amplify a strong personal vision, this work of art is a dialogue about fitting in and belonging. Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be accepted. But, on the other hand, belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.

The left armrest’s over-dimensioned stitching states 1927 (MCMXXVII) in roman numerals, and the right armrest displays 2021 (MMXXI).
