Inspired by questions of conflict and diversity, the Paths and Conflicts Exhibition, created by Jum Nakao, Kiko Araújo and Julio Dojcsar, proposed forming seven pairs of designers from different areas and styles. The paired designers were invited to create a single item of clothing. The whole process of discussion and creation each pair had to go through to arrive at the end result was documented on video and presented alongside the clothes as parts of an installation. The exhibition was part of the Mediterranean event held at Sesc Pompeia in 2005.
