Garments Against Waste

Garments Against Waste

PhD student Rute Chaves is interested in old clothes. Concerned by the vast amounts of garment waste in our society, Rute invites the public to M-Pavilion for an art exhibit titled Garments Against Waste. Together, they unwind old garments and transform them into something new using a hacked knitting machine. GARMENTS AGAINST WASTE is a 4-minute documentary that highlights the integral role that community can play in making a difference, and how art can be a site for “critical dreaming”.
