Dressing Body, Undressing Humanity is a deconstruction of human nature through the process of dress.  This thesis explores the capacity of depravity within human beings using the symbolic decaying nature of the body as a metaphor for the decline of human mortality.  From the overconsumption of resources, the abuse of others, the massive scale of destruction in warfare, and our individual offenses against one another, we see human beings commit atrocious acts throughout history and invariably in our daily lives.
