Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment
Lindsey M. Whittle earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2007. She has taught English
in Gifu, Japan and Art to youth in Kentucky. At The University of Cincinnati, Whittle studied Fashion. Currently,
she is a “Master Crafter” for Kiki Magazine. Whittle is a performance/fashion/visual artist that uses silliness, change,
transformation, and interactivity to collaborate with others and spread good cheer. Her work is often connected
to things wearable and the body and functions best in public places.

The most essential component of my work is people. My work strives to connect me with others and connect
other peopleto each other. Bright and eccentrically colored objects that have infinite possibility of change make up #connect.
#connect features materials that physically come together, but can also be a collaborative, community experience,
bringing people together. This work is a starting off point that isn’t finished until other people activate it in some capacity.
