About the costume:
Jill Sigman challenged me to create wardrobe for the apocalypse. Think peak oil, barren land, hazy skies. Her work addresses the feelings and issues associated with sustainability, the mechanization of agriculture and mass consumption of resources. As such, I’ve taken a familiar approach to the design of costume for this piece.
Entirely constructed from reclaimed materials that capture the utilitarian aspects of clothing one might wear in an environment much more devastated than we see today, the pieces incorporate vinyl shower curtains, plastic tarps, construction netting, wool, refuse packaging and distressed denim. I’ve used many materials that are purposely non-biodegradable to invoke the prospect of making clothing from what the Earth will not reclaim. Things we must deal with. Use. Destroy. And use again.
I hope u came come and experience this evening length piece with me!
