For my proposal, I was influenced by my last project of making a garment and presenting it as a performance. From my ideas, I want to show a documentation of movement and behaviour through a garment. Looking at medicine, treatment and care during the 1950s.
This came to mind when watching patients being held down by people or with straps ensuring they wouldn't damage or break bones when being electrocuted. They also used rubber instruments placed in the mouth so the patient would bite through their tongue when in pain.
These techniques were used to make the patients rest. The idea of people not confining to society was an element of being mad. i.e Randle McMurphy.
