Toxic Legacy, 2019

This transparent, woven curtain displays how we can use materials efficiently to confront our current environmental problems of technological waste materials,  by re-using exactly these materials.

Using conductive thread, metal, led lighting and electronic waste I have made a curtain to illustrate the thin veil that separates us from the harsh reality of today’s technological consumption and the waste it produces. With a distance sensor the viewer lights up this almost invisible curtain suspended in mid air. This woven curtain highlights how we don’t make a close enough connection between ourselves and the waste that we produce.

This piece was exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam as part of the ‘Rethinking Bauhaus’ Exhibition, October 2019.
