Police tape is fashioned into “warning-wear”.
From the artists
I use art and fashion as a tool to initiate conversations about sustainability and how every decision we make has an impact on the planet.
Description of the sculptures:
Crime Scene, 2011
Police tape and worn out table cloths
This sculpture makes the connection between crime scenes found on the body of mother earth (air, soil and water pollution, and waste) and in our bodies as evidenced by the hundreds of man-made chemicals and heavy metals found in our blood stream.
The Price of Fashion, 2016
Ripped, torn and cast off clothing This collection of three garments explores the true costs to people and the planet of our clothing. The clothing industry is the second most polluting industry in the world after oil, and many third world countries and their people are paying the price for our cheap fashion and its pollution.
The Trash Man’s Suit, 2016
Cloth, plastic, trash
The Suit was Commissioned by Rob Greenfield to wear during an “eco-stunt”, where he wore his trash for 30 days around the streets of New York City. The project brought attention to the amount of waste we each create and focused on how we can reduce our trash. As Rob said: “First I reduce my consumption and my needs, then I reuse what I can and lastly… I recycle.”
