"Slips on Slips"
My work examines the role of clothing in everyday life as well as its larger, cross-cultural impact on the global environment. From their production to the end of their life cycle, much of our clothing takes more than it gives. Harsh synthetic dyes seeping into our waterways, yards of fabric scraps that don’t make it into a final piece, and man-made fabrics that sit in landfills after their time are only a few of the ways in which modern day clothing contributes to the degradation of our planet.
