Title:
Riches to Rags

Author:
Eloise Dethier-Eaton

Description:
I like to draw upon the decorative to reflect on the environmental challenges we face today and to examine the various notions of aesthetic, material, economic and emotional value we attribute to objects. ‘Riches to Rags’ explores the harmful impacts of fast-fashion, whereby mountains of mass-produced items of clothing, from the cheap stuff to luxury goods, are discarded as they lose their economic value and turned into trash destined for landfill. By using visual means, I want to draw attention to the ways in which the act of discarding these items can turn them from ‘pretty’ to ‘ugly’ in an instant.
