Ένα project τελείως διαφορετικό απ’ τα άλλα έρχεται από τον Κολομβιανό σχεδιαστή μόδας Daniel Ramos Obregón. To θέμα με το οποίο έχει καταπιαστεί είναι οι διαφορετικές έννοιες του «εαυτού». Μέσα από την τρέχουσα εργασία του, όπως έχει πει και ο ίδιος, θέλει να εξερευνήσει τα όρια και τη σχέση ανάμεσα στη μόδα, τη γλυπτική και την απόδοση των τεχνών μέσα από μια εννοιολογική, αισθητική και πλήρως φορεμένη άποψη.

This project has taken as a starting point the concept of “Outrospection” initially introduced by philosopher Roman Krznaric, 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 inside 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.
