Skeleton In The Closet is an installation designed for a properties-swapping environmentalist group. The vision was to create a hanger device that will present itself as a piece of sculpture even without any hanging garments. Named in the English idiom meaning ‘hidden secret’, the name plays a double entendre with its skeletal form versus the idea of strangers revealing private belongings from their wardrobe. The design comprises a string of eighty hangers morphing gradually in shape to perform different hanging functions. An opening is created in the piece for users to enter the encircled space for a different experience.
