    In response to Errr..., posted by Derek Stewart,
    in the thread Ephemeral Horticouture

    I understand the wasteful aspect in terms of materials. I do appreciate the greater message, perhaps, of the wastefulness of the fashion industry itself, though.

    All flowers and vegetal materials are composted in the end.

    "Weedrobes is a series of ephemeral sculptures linking our dysfunctional relationship to both our bodies and the environment. It points the concept of environmental art into the realm of the body as politic and the hegemony of the fashion industry.'

    These eco-wearables are made from live plant materials such as leaves, flowers and branches and their organic structure indicates a symbiotic relationship between the body and the land. They question our attitudes toward territorial dominance, societal status and sexual identity."
