Prompt: Our final assignment was to demonstrate your strengths as an artist, along with showing understanding of greater environmental & social issues at stake. The project was very open-ended as there were many ways to approach this.

For my assignment, I decided to reuse old fabrics and clothing that was headed to the trash. I wanted to recreate something new and usable out of junk that would’ve polluted the earth if thrown away. I also decided to naturally dye parts of the fabric to make the colors a bit more captivating.
