Muslin Brothers

Con-Fitting Booth

These sound segments are part of an ongoing research project of the design duo the Muslin Brothers (Tamar Levit and Yaen Levi), dealing with prison apparel and uniforms.

The segments were first played during the Alliances and Commonalities conference, which took place last October at the Arts University in Stockholm. They weave together personal stories of prisoners, state laws, and social protocols that examine apparel and its selection through passions and fears. The segments are meant to generate an active, performative experience for the listeners and they are intended for two participants: the measurer and the measured. 

Please use  safety pins and listen to the sound work with a partner for the action. “Wear” the other’s experimentation and confront personal experiences.
