Jacket

£80.00

Deconstruction

Inspired by the story of the ship of Theseus, the designer thought identity and personality would change following the change of environment. Her design depicted the process of searching new identity and stand point. The deconstructed jacket represents the collapse of old identity and the pattern represents the exploration of new identity. The story of the ship of Theseus: In ancient Greece, there was a legendary king named Theseus who supposedly founded the city of Athens. Since he fought many naval battles, the people of Athens dedicated a memorial in his honor by preserving his ship in the port. This ship of Theseus stayed there for hundreds of years. As time went on, some of the wooden planks of Theseus ship started rotting away. To keep the ship nice and complete, the rotting planks were replaced with new planks made of the same material. Here is the key question: If you replace one of the planks, is it still the same ship of Theseus? This question about a mythical ship is the poster child for one of the most interesting problems in all of philosophy, namely the problem of identity. What is a physical object? How do things stay the same even after they change? At what point does an object become different? When we talk about a certain object and say that it changed, what exactly is IT?
