Presented by Crazy Dames, Gladki Planning & OCAD University

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.


About Crazy Dames

Crazy Dames art projectAs a reclamation and an ode to Jane Jacobs — the seminal urban theorist often dismissed as a “crazy dame” by male counterparts — we use the artist’s studio as an experimental lab to test Jacobs’ “crazy” ideas: her focus on people and fostering tactical and collaborative approaches to our cities.
