How can textiles express our rapid consumption of the planet’s resources?
Sabatina Leccia’s work is a visual metaphor aiming to communicate that we are consuming too much too fast. Through the invention and reinterpretation of existing objects, a collection of products were created, each one designed to visualise a specific set of data or specific material scenario.
Through exploring methods of ‘designed destruction’ and removing calculated portions of material Sabatina aims also to question if we can design in a more material-efficient way.
In a time of unparalleled material scarcity and increasing population she hopes to use design as a communicative vehicle to visualise the urgent need to reconsider the patterns and speed of our consumption, and bringing these broader global issues closer to home. “Eat The World Up” is located within the table landscape, aiming to underline the notion we are ‘eating’ our planet’s resources.
