Embroidering trash


I keep all the plastic and paper waste , in times I ask also people to bring me their garbage, in order to create a costume - sculpture out of them.

I spread them around me, separate them into colors and textures, choose which color thread to work with and embroider. My goal is not simply to stack them together, but to create something aesthetically beautiful, that by looking at it you don`t immediately understand that it is made of garbage. But it is and is created to give a message against consumption, and the destruction of our planet with the reckless use of plastics...
