In collaboration with fashion designer Erica Deluchi and media artists Tara Pearson and Andrew Burrell. Clothing Crisis is a wearable artwork exhibited through performance that aims to highlight, interrogate and ultimately take advantage of the invisible data networks that surround us.
By collecting and repurposing a twitter data stream that exposes fashion anxieties, a system is created from which emerges a generative conversation between audience and artwork.
The work is realized as an illuminated garment yelling tweets, and is constructed containing elements of unworn clothing collected from people’s wardrobes. It is an exploration into clothing excess that reinterprets traditional items of clothing.
