Wearable Tracy

Wearable Tracy

Lee Kim, this short film’s subject, makes a personal commitment to wearing a hat, crown, or mask made of pipe cleaners all day, everyday, for an entire year as she experiences her life in New York. 

Originating from an experiment in design thinking, free form expression and an urge to grow her human connections, the film “Wearable Tracy” chronicles all it taught her.

“A documentary short follows a New York City woman whose creative experiment with homemade crowns changed the way she moved through the world.” Rachel Syme, The New Yorker
