Wear What You Waste

Ruby Parker



Discarded egg cartons, cotton and thread, lycra

WEAR WHAT YOU WASTE My collection ?WEAR WHAT YOU WASTE!? uses deconstructed household waste materials, transforming them into items of luxury. I have recognised the aesthetic appeal of discarded packaging: egg cartons, aluminium pie tins and washing detergent pouches, and purposefully disguised the original form, creating unique new textures, patterns and uses. Through craftsmanship, these mundane objects have become not only beautiful, but valuable objects of desire. I aim to challenge the viewer's perception of what we, as a society deem as 'waste.'
