If there aren't enough reasons to curb our spending these days, I just found more. 3,615 more reasons. Three-thousand-six-hundred-fifteen pounds is the amount of textile waste created by New Yorker's every 5 minutes, according to Derick Melander. His work most definitely creates an emotional reaction with the viewer. All the stuff that we consume. I am almost speechless. His work is important so that we are visually stimulated at the three-dimensional graphic representation as a sign of our times. On the other hand, I want to know if his works are temporary and that once an exhibition is over are the clothes donated to a shelter- or now Haiti? Where does all of our stuff go?
