Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Cooper, Meghan
Abstract:

This thesis investigates the science of yogic living: living in harmony with nature and expanding consciousness through meditation. It discusses how the clothing we wear can support this way of living. Wearing white/light clothing is an ancient, science-based tradition maintained by yoga practitioners. The thesis culminates in the creation of a line of clothing called ‘Basic Goodness Clothing’. The line consists of light colour clothing made of organic cotton, illuminating a way of living a specific modern yogic lifestyle. The thesis begins with an account of what art and artmaking mean to me and how this meaning includes clothing, in principle, and Basic Goodness Clothing in particular.
