Anatomical Dress

Rachel Wright made a few dresses from vintage slips and nightgowns that depict the anatomy of the wearer. She's doing so to express an intersection of public and private lives:

The Dream Anatomy series explore these imagined realms inside the body. Because these garments are meant to be worn, the boundary between the internal and the external is blurred. The invisible is made visible: wear your inside on the outside. By using women’s slips and nighties, articles that were not originally intended for public life, I am playiing with the line between the public and the private arenas.

I recently saw a woman give a talk about diabetes, and she had a sort of apron that had plushy internal organs attached, so she could demonstrate stuff being digested, etc. Some were attached with velcro, others had velcro so that things could be attached to them (insulin, etc.) It was cuter than this depiction. She'd lost one of the kidneys, or, as she put it, she'd donated the kidney.
