The project engages in moral critique by examining the relationship between humans and animals in the context of the social, economic, and technological systems associated with the consumption of animals.
The project explores the barrier between humans and animals, emphasizing the disconnect between our food origin, the animal's lives, and the power dynamics of control, domestication, and symbolic appropriation of animals, often viewing them as objects, commodities, symbols, or subjects to be manipulated.
This project's collection is an exploration that combines fashion industry-inspired techniques of disassembly and reassembly. Key components of button-down shirts arranged to create clothing that takes on familiar animal forms.
This design approach symbolizes the projection of human social systems and controls onto the bodies of these "dead" animals. Each model in the collection represents the story of a different animal, highlighting the animals that are typically sacrificed for their flesh each year.
The project is intended to encourage both the designer and the viewers of the works to critically rethink their attitudes and perceptions towards animals.
