Overproduction and overconsumption have driven the Earth to an extreme climate crisis. One of the major contributors is the fashion industry. Speculating future fashion scenarios utilizing digital technology is a part of my research on zero-waste and post-sustainable practices. I utilize a 3D design software, Clo3D, which was developed for creating “true-to-life” garment simulation in a virtual space before physical sampling and production. My research has led me to find artistic expression within this technology, as you can see in Futureland in Blue. A blue human with bunny fur arms mounted on a wall converses about social and environmental issues, transporting us to a future place. A place where humans are responsible, and the only waste is computer data. Through this artwork, I hope to bring awareness about the environmental impacts of clothing production and to educate about possibilities of digital technologies to lead us towards a balanced human-nature existence.
