Collaborative sculpture created for New York Textile Month, under the direction of Lindsay Degen. Eight artists were invited to collaboratively create an 8-foot sculpture that references the human body. We each developed a textile using upcycled white fabric from FabScrap. I created the ruffled textile on the middle layer.
“I hope there are multiple things that people take away. The point is how to think about how clothes are made and who makes it, that the industry has a problem with sustainability and how and where things are made. It’s also a social stance on the celebritization of fashion, on why are people so in awe of models, when there are people who are unrecognized who make the fabrics and make the garments. There’s a wastefulness in fashion in terms of the way materials are used and also in what is not actually bought and who knows where it goes." - Lindsay Degen in Women's Wear Daily.
