This fully-illustrated, 56-page catalog was originally created to accompany a recent exhibit at Tufts University Art Gallery. Pattern Language: Clothing as Communicator investigates clothing as a means to express and fulfill primary human needs--needs of the mind, body, and soul. The works explore the interaction of clothing, fabric, and the body as a form of communication and as a way of suggesting new relationships between individuals and the coverings that protect, occlude, and redefine our bodies. The exhibition and this volume address a range of important themes: our need for shelter, social connections, protection, and entertainment, our desire for self-expression, and our need to articulate our identity.

Included are thirty-two reproductions of works by established and emerging artists from Germany, Italy, Spain, Honduras, Japan, England, Greece, Egypt, and the United States. The works in Pattern Language, which are either unique or editioned rather than mass-produced, include historical examples, contemporary objects, and new proposals, as well as interactive and wearable editions.

Pattern Language represents guest curator Judith Hoos Fox's ongoing interest in art as a signpost for and critique of culture. She explains: "It is exciting to make connections between fashion and art and between art and design across generations of artists; to bring together the work of ethnically and culturally diverse artists; and to show work that involves cutting-edge technologies as well as couture tailoring."
