Take Care

Not what you possess but what you do with what you have, determines your true worth.
Thomas Carlyle, 1795-1881

The work examines the time spent mending by my grandmother, sewing to make “invisible”- in stark contrast to my generation, who buy excessively, with little regard for the care and attention to what they buy, store and throw away.
The work explores our relationship to fast fashion and looks to these cross-generational conversations in the search to find new ways of making from old thinking; to do more with less.
