Abstract: A series of life size photographic portraits, Dressing for Evacuation, was shown as part of the Tentworks Exhibition at the Feverish World Symposium, October 2018 in Vermont, USA, and FutureScan4: Valuing Practice, January 2019, University of Bolton, UK. Dressing for Evacuation, the first project in a series of works titled Imagining Neutopia, sets out to discover what clothes people may take with them into an unknown future. Through a fictional scenario the project offers insight into the human emergency response of getting dressed and gathering a limited selection of possessions. Participants were asked to dress as if they had been alerted to an imminent large-scale evacuation, responses were recorded in a photoshoot and accompanying survey. This Collection comprises a single-component output with contextualising information, providing evidence of the series of photographic portraits and exhibitions. Contextualising information includes a 300-word statement, research timeline, research questions, and documentation of methods and process.
