‘To Dress Up’ is a twenty minute documentary exploring notions on identity and what that could mean by approaching three different subjects with varying experiences regarding their identity, without showing their faces.
In navigating these experiences, thoughts and questions, a visual journey is made into notions of the body, gender, normalcy, otherness and senses of self, reflecting on personal connections through ordinary objects, which embody these experiences in some way or another.

A moving poster accompanies the work as an eyecatcher and introduces the documentary. Custom (3D) motion and type reflect the rhythm and movement of the scenes in the film, interchanging between different shapes resembling the openings of piping bag nozzles, symbolizing the heart element of the type and the ceramic sculptures shown and visualizing what an act of ‘dressing up’ actually could entail and mean.
