We are living in a world of planned and perceived obsolescence, consuming without concern, leading to endangerment of species and our planet. Coming together as a community affords us more resources and power to create change. How can we rethink our patterns of consumption and waste?
Knot On My Planet unites with the Elephant Crisis Fund, to help provide a secure future for elephants by forging partnerships with fashion and luxury brands. 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to projects on the ground, to end the ivory crisis, promote human-elephant coexistence, and protect elephant landscapes.
Another Life is a giant skeleton of a tusk, designed and created with Nicole Charles, inviting viewers to walk inside and tie fabric onto its structure, communally building this piece.
