A systematic dissection of Edith Beale or "Little Edie's" signature and revolutionary costumes from the 1976 cult film documentary, Grey Gardens. The film depicts a fascinating relationship between a mother and daughter; former debutantes and relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, living in their once was, but now condemned East Hampton Estate. What's interesting about this film is the sense of time standing still; the depiction of Little Edie's relationship to her most prized garments, rotating and interchanging between scenes.
This poster documents those relationships, showcasing her top ten most reoccurring costumes. Each costume is represented through its number of occurrences, number of frames and total screen time; each sized proportionately in relationship to one another, as well as the entire film. For example, the brooch is the top occurring item, with 25 appearances, totaling 089618 frames, or 67% of the film. This information is complimented formally with graphic and typographic expressions of this same idea.
