ON AGGREGATORS is an autobiographical anecdote about the aggregator and aggregation as a design practise.
It captures the everyday,
as a tangible image of emotion,
that we once knew and consume so rapidly.
It is a response to over-consumption and the speed surrounding cultures and lifestyle, specifically in reference to the consumption of digital information and data. Expressed through the lens of archival ready-mades and vernacular objects that give genesis to every day experiences and memories, aggregation is an identity and practise infused with empathy and emotion, prompting contemporaneity and a slower design terrain that activates the sensibility of being with time.
ON AGGREGATORS is a highly saturated story and curatorial practise composed of paradoxical mediums that formulate a genesis of identities, experiences and emotions capturing the real and unreal, the original and the replica, the vernacular and the ready-made and the filtration of memory through digital printed knitwear and traditional ribbing techniques. Aggregation is a composition of my identity, a birth of my practise and a statement on fashion’s trend-driven novel consumption, prompting individuals to connect to garments as objects through past, present and future tenses as a new formula and approach to sustainability.
