Knot On My Planet • Holt Renfrew
Art Direction ⋅ Installation ⋅ Design
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?
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. The engulfing size of the tusk is a nod to our society and planet — we are living in it and have the power to affect it.
We approached Another Life as a community project. It is made of over 90% reused or repurposed materials in an effort to create an eco-friendly and socially conscious piece with minimal waste.
This project is made possible by working with the local companies listed below and repurposing their scrap material:
Well and Good (wood, workspace)
Relative Space (flooring)
Notion Manufacturing (fabric)
Avery Plewes (fabric)
Holt Renfrew (fabric)
🟢 Oak flooring
🟢♻️ Fabric pieces
🟢= Diverted from landfill
♻️= Reused from previous projects
