The Umbrella : Artifact of Defence

The Umbrella : Artifact of Defence

description

United Umbrellas - An installation piece that studies the unique architectural qualities of the umbrella, both as a historical artifact and as a form. Having creative liberty with an everyday object puts into perspective the items we have in our households. Using the umbrella within a social context, we observe the utility it has to act individually and in clusters to protect protestors and create a barrier for those who are injured.
