Abstract

Express Yourself is a study of the T-Sbirt as a means for mass visual communication. After surveying many people as to the types and reasons that they wear T-Shirts, I came to the conclusion that people wear them in order to express a part of themselves to the public. I went about creating several different T-Sbirts to express a few aspects of myself, according the categories of T-Shirts as discussed further in the paper. Many different methods were used to create the shirts, which all started out as the same white, cotton shirt. Iron on transfers, silk screening, band-dying, sewing, painting, and other methods were used to create these vehicles of communication. After showing these shirts, I concluded that they were indeed successful in communicating the various aspects of myself that they were intended to.
