The world generates about 2.6 trillion pounds of garbage each year. The more we consume the more garbage we produce. In this project I wanted to achieve a new way or recycling, and managed to find a way to turn garbage into flexible wearable textiles.
Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?
I've used empty plastic bottles that were cut into strings and an unravelled old sweater, and wove them in various techniques and different doses.
What were you trying to express?
I wanted to make people think what happens to their trash after getting rid of it, and showing that ironically they can consume it all over again.
Is it 100% your original work?
