Remembering that it takes 2,900 litres of water to produce one pair of jeans this project should come as a glass of fresh water:
[Everything in the dumpster void collection] is made from many same shape pre-cut fabric pieces discarded by industrial sewing factories. The pre-cuts are the negative space of designs, left-over after cutting. The challenge for DumpsterVoid project is to use found fabric pieces as they are without re-cutting. The design is the result of its ‘limits’. the pre-shaped form. Great emphasis is given to stitching and layering.
