Well, I woke up this morning, and I got myself a beer
The future’s uncertain, and the end is always near
– Jim Morrison
Thinking about their future makes people anxious. We don’t know what’s going to happen and what to expect. This project was inspired by The Doors’ song Roadhouse Blues and the Mad Max movies that explore the idea of the dystopian future. The garment is constructed out of paper clips, trash bags and used electronics. I used the clips to simulate a chainmail. The trash bags highlight the idea of sustainability and the importance of nature’s preservation. Finally, the old headphones that act like the shoulder pads and the wires represent the values of today that are going to die tomorrow. I found the materials in an old garage. There was a lot of stuff that seemed to be important and valuable but lost its usefulness a couple of decades after. In this project, the headphones and the wires appear like ancient relics that are found in the dystopian futuristic world and attached to clothes as an embellishment, since they’re not useful anymore. The model wears warrior makeup, motorcycle googles, mesh tights and gloves that finalize the look.
