“A Division of Uniform”
by Matthew Brubaker


A Division of Uniform seeks to create agency and imbue empowerment through the clear collectivization of individuals.

In this project the uniform becomes a way of projecting identity, assuming authority, identifying allies, and enacting progress towards a shared cause. By co-opting the means of the “institution”, this project accepts the uniform as a construct and delivers its powers and privledges to those who need the legitimacy it brings.
