Fast fashion is the world's second largest polluter, emitting 10% of all carbon emissions and is dumped into lands and oceans all over the world. In Our compilation of video and photography come together to evoke empathetic response in our viewers. By seeing humans absorbed in plastic, we mirror the way our Earth and animal habitats are being covered in clothes and garbage every day. One solution we provide is upcycled fashion - turning old clothes/materials into ones that can be worn again, rather than thrown away, or buying new. We hope people begin to see beyond the glamour of fast fashion, and see our planet as our home, and our responsibility. Thank you to the WRI (World Resources Institute) for their constant support and insight for this project, as well as Yasmin Gibson and Maureen Furniss.

In this video, my mom and I perform rituals as a visceral process to create a dialogue between changing states of self and site. Hair, simultaneously dead and living, functions as a […]
“I create 3 videos to show a world hidden inside the reflection of water. I use my tentacle that is made out of water to find a link between the world that surrounds me right now and the memories of adventure that only I know. No matter if it is humidity or moisture, I sense […]
