Using litter collected in different areas and some basic kitchen tools, I created a swimsuit. It was then modelled and photographed in the space where its 'fabric’ was retrieved, highlighting the existence of urban waste in a way that proposes positive transformation. It may be overlooked, but garbage is a core part of every consumer’s identity, as much as their culture and heritage are. After we die, our waste will live on - by up to 1,000 years for some plastics. Garbage is an understated part of my legacy, and the legacy of millions of other people across the world.
