Abstract

Thrifting, upcycling, and raging against the fast fashion industry allow people to express themselves, not only strive to “save the planet” but also make for an attractive narrative. My project will appeal to these ideals, transforming stories and offering new purposes to used and otherwise discarded, everyday items. My exploration of sustainability through hands-on artistic practices will be documented and reflected throughout my process in conjunction with constant research methods into techniques and tools. Finally, I will produce a collection of final transformed products of various mediums and elements as, not a conclusion, but an introduction to the future possibilities of intentionality, creativity, problem solving, and sustainability working together cohesively.
