Outrospection :: Daniel Ramos Obregón

A Conceptual Exploration Of The Self

Columbian fashion artist and designer Daniel Ramos Obregón’s ‘Outrospection’ project explores the various meanings of the self through relational artistic practice. Crafted from porcelain casts, gold-plated brass metal frames and leather harnesses, Obregón’s collection is made to be worn and interacted with in a study of self-representation. The artist’s work was inspired by the concept of Outrospection originally propounded by philosopher Roman Krznaric, namely that “in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, it is be experiencing life that one discovers and shapes oneself.”

Speaking of the intention behind the project, Obregón says about his work, “I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent -in a metaphorical way- the mind being projected inside out of the body as a way of self-expression and representation.”

This project has taken as a starting point the concept of “Outrospection” initially introduced by philosopher Roman Krznaric, where he proposes that in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, it is be experiencing life that one discovers and shapes oneself. I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent -in a metaphorical way- the mind being projected inside out of the body as a way of self-expresion and representation.

The collection has been hand crafted out of porcelain body casts, gold plated brass metal frames that encompass the body, hand turned Colombian kingwood handles and vegetable-tanned leather harnesses.
