Invisibility Cloaks, 2021

Reversible gold and silver lamé cloaks, metal racks, hangers, text on silver suit bag

How to be (un)seen

- Select a reversible invisibility cloak (both sides are (in)visible)

- For high (in)visibility, choose a cloak that reaches the ground

- For very high (in)visibility, keep the hood up

- For maximum (in)visibility, blend imperceptibly into your surroundings

-Move any way you like, no one can see you now

 

 

Inert until activated by wearing, visitors are invited to try on cloaks and be playful. Each reversible metallic cloak is unique, and both garish and oversized, yet the shapelessness of the draping and the oversized hoods hide multiple visible signifiers, from presumptive race to age and gender. When such markers are unable to be used for discriminatory means, who might we become?
