I really enjoyed reading this article. What an unique & cool concept to wear artwork that represents the artist's own work! I just saw this amazing video art that captures the essence of Tokyo and it's culture. Art doesn't always have to be done on paper or canvas, and i will have to remember that :)

I started to comment "evocative phrase"not being sure if worn was a verb or an adjective, then I read the other comments and learned it was a link. Tricky post!

That book looks great. There's a wonderful essay by Peter Stallybrass called "Worn Worlds," in part about his wearing of a jacket that had belonged to a friend who died. See if you can get a hold of it--just beautiful.

Yuko, art is everywhere isn't it? Most of all, in our minds.

ExactingL, it is isn't it?

Shelley, I didn't think of it that way, but it is evocative.

FS, thanks, I will definitely have a look for it. Sounds great.

Pao, on my list too!
