The series of Multiple Clothing were like works. The idea was that when you put them on then you changed yourself into this work: you became the work and when you interacted or you had relations with other people this would animate - initiate the work also - so the pieces all had this possibility of change within them and so you could change your identity and transform yourself. You bought it as a kit and you could then make it into a dress or a long dress or a jacket in a way it was unisex, though we weren’t particularly thinking along those lines.
