Jander Jil

Luxemburger, Born 22nd August 1994


Jander’s work is inspired by the distorted views one gets when underwater. Being underwater is like stepping into a new world which isn’t made for us humans. Our senses don’t work the same as on land, without an oxygen regulator we cannot breathe, or see without a mask. In order to visit this quasi-magical realm we must be equipped with the right tools and clothes so we can stay underwater for extended periods of time. Jander’s main focus is on the changes in visual perception. Due to the density of water one is not able to see very far. For her graduation collection she has designed eyewear for an imagined underwater tribe, living and wandering through the unknown underwater plains. It’s the answer to the question “If there was such a mythical tribe, what would they wear and how would they view their world?”
