WASTED is an interactive art installation that asks participants to collaboratively reflect on how our patterns contribute to the growing amount of recyclable clothing within our landfills.
You are invited to come spend time in this multi-colored, upcycled macramé web of recycled textiles, where you can help us work with these materials and share ideas about how we can collectively act at the individual, neighbourhood and city-scale to reduce our impact.
