Outrospection; The Body and Mind by Daniel Ramos Obregón

The work of Colombian designer and fashion artist Daniel Ramos Obregón focuses on the notions of the ‘self’ and explores the relationship between fashion, sculpture and performance arts.

For his project, “Outrospection; The Body and Mind“, which was also the final project for the MA Fashion Artefact at London College of Fashion, Daniel Ramos Obregón got his inspiration from the concept of “Outrospection”, initially introduced by philosopher Roman Kznaric: “I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent – in a metaphorical way – the mind being projected inwards out of the body as a way of self-expression and representation.”
