The View From Everywhere"
 Ian Addison Hall

Dumbo Arts Festival, Brooklyn, NY
location: 67 Washington Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY

The View From Everywhere (Patterns of Science) relates to a program created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) shortly after World War II. The program’s purpose was to prevent an apocalyptic third world war by promoting intercultural understanding. Using vintage catalog imagery, each piece in this series explores the relationship between the patterns that exist in fashion and the patterns that are found in human genetics. While a clothing pattern is designed to make the wearer look and feel different, when it is expanded over a model’s exposed skin it instead represents the biological and emotional framework that we all share. Acknowledging these similarities encourages empathy, compassion and understanding.
