PURITY OF SILK

The intervention of human beings becomes more intensive and therefore more visible.

This can be noticed by the fact that humans have taken away the natural environment of this organism and therefore the organism can only live in an artificial environment. 

This organism becomes domesticated.

The silkworm is an example of this kind of organism.

Therefore Iris holds human beings as responsible for the development of a natural material such as silk. Just like the organism that produces the material itself.

In which the mutual dependance of organism and humans becomes visual and enters into cooperation with nature.

The ignorance of these problems obstruct the sustainability.

By caring, literally, for our clothing, she re-designs the experience of the value of a garment. With that she wants to make society aware of the consumers behavior and its consequences.

The material is visible, after some growing time, in the purest way and takes a three-dimensional form immediately
