audio excerpt from installation, 07'18"







Sustainable design doesn't always exist when we have to sell products as first priority, when the moment of attraction, and transaction, are all that counts. There is no future.

We can buy again and again.

But if we wanted something more, could a promise be made? Can sustainability enter the market in terms of lasting relationships, finding continuity and the passing of time?

Would we be able to connect to the future as much as we remember the past?

Things turn over again.

There is nothing for sale in the CHAN shop, no fashion images and no pushy sales attendants. The installation presents a series of recordings made from conversations with people about their clothing and the way that the manufacture of garments relates to the most intimate parts of everyday life. Fashion design and the clothing industry exist here outside of trend, perhaps in a space where memory and experience can outweigh a sales figure or another quick turnover.
