Central Saint Martins’ 1st year Womenswear students have collaborated for the Turning Point Project on this video, called “Project Pi”. They have collaborated with a sound designer Thomas Stow to create the sound effects that you can hear, which is overlayed on top of the music. Also, they have created a book in conjunction with the video; here are some pages from the “Project Pi” book.
Created by Amy Trinh, Aljana Zdovc, Amanda Yam, James Mitchell.We are first year fashion design womenswear students.

Physical space in a metaphorical sense is like an 8 track tape, we need to become more aware of how much we are filling it up with. However, in real time and reality, the situation has become drastic in that we are simply running out of space.
Houses are built up and space is precious. We cannot simply delete a part of something without placing it elsewhere. The green belt is a policy to retain areas of largely agricultural land surrounding or neighboring urban areas. However, these lands are now being built over. As mass production is at it’s all time high, space is becoming scarce.
The relationship between people, their environment and space is particularly interesting. We want to explore the relationship between human behavior and the built environment. To do this we want to create a video performance of our concept. This is through building upon a body, to create a sense of burden and weight. We want to use the idea of flat pack in reference to the mass space until it is pulled up to create a towering object reminiscent of city life today, gradually affecting the countrysides as well.
The idea of the person lifting the string up echos to the idea of a chain reaction in affecting the environment. Every action we do is effecting the situation around us. It demonstrates how reality is flexible and that things can be changed. Lifting the pieces from the flat ground emphasizes the development of building upwards.
