"A Fashionable Smoke Show" - My art mashup takes an original photo of the Lynn Valley corner store, and twists it to show how the world is changing with the introduction of fast fashion. Fast fashion is a huge pollution contributor today, but it is often overlooked. The piece I created shows the bright clothing in the store front, with green pollution smog coming in undetected from both sides. Through my work, I hope to share that if society chooses to grow the fast fashion industry instead of stop it, the pollution and damage will soon be irreversible.
