BFA 2 - Film
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.

My clothes my hair my face my body. The way I look and the way I feel are at war with each other. A film about gender in isolation.
“On Sept 11th, 2001 I watched the twin towers falling with my father. Glued to the TV. A silent demolition. An American reality TV show. In the weeks that followed, I started to see American flags everywhere. Especially from immigrants of all colors, flying the flag out of a sense of fear of appearing to […]

A collection of melodies. Embedded like a small light in the corner. This piece engages themes and processes of transparency/translucence, copying/covering, and distance/absence: the traces of a thing not there. Melody fragments expand and contract. Here, melody crystallizes into harmony and harmony unfolds as melody. Like a constellation of stars; or in the direction of […]
