Tuesday was the year anniversary of the BP oil spill and Friday is the reception for the SOS Security Blanket. In this time of reflection, it is interesting to see the blanket all put together, with over 300 squares created by people from all over the country. Each square a vote for better uses for petroleum. Its presence is very intense displayed this way. It really shows our waste and excess in a fun and non-abrasive way.
Surprisingly it has been very inspiring and exciting working with these recycled materials. When I originally started developing the concepts for this piece I did not think I would enjoy working with garbage. Now nine months later I have developed the PAC Apparel line and am finding more and more ways to incorporate what would have been garbage into my art work. Below are some of the PAC Apparel pieces.
