Frustrated by the vast amount of perfectly wearable clothing that ends up in the landfill every year, two Cuban artists are using their creative talent to speak out about global consumerism.
Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz, referred to collectively as Guerra de la Paz, have made it their mission to recover landfill-bound clothing and render them into subversive art installations.
Arranged into clever interpretations of nature, disaster, and social interactions, these designs serve as a cohesive message regarding issues of mass consumption, international conflict, and environmental degradation.
Some of the designs are more disturbing than others, but all are striking displays of color and shape that you won't soon forget. Many of the garments appear to be in excellent repair, a heart breaking reminder about how quickly we toss aside our functional clothes for the latest fashions.
