Fast fashion behemcloth

Artist: Jason Sank & Rebecca Wright

This is a small-scale replica (1: 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000) of the ever-growing Fast Fashion Behemcloth. It’s not just the immense material waste but the human waste and environmental devastation (both in production and disposal) that makes the fast fashion industry particularly bad. In some ways though it’s just a symptom of a world where unchecked capital can stretch its grubby fingers into far off places and squeeze the unprotected people and land for all they’re worth in the mindless pursuit of growth and profit. Jason was the visionary and built the structure while Bec sewed together the endless bandages of fabric scraps in which it was wrapped.
