REPLACE While working in the world of installations, productions and events, the amount of new materials that are used for a single purpose and then sent to waste is astonishing. We have become used to not giving things a second life because it is usually faster and easier to get rid of the "used" and buy new. The following projects were created based around the reuse of materials that were either headed to the landfill, or were already in the trash to begin with giving another life to materials and hopefully being able to repurpose them after for other projects.
By designing and building projects with this in mind, we are able to integrate the next life of the materials into the projects themselves, and create with many potential futures in mind.
Title & Description
KNOT ON MY PLANET
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.
