Object book

Dina Bakalova

This artist’s book highlights the global issue of green washing. It uses textiles, natural dyes, and transfer paper for the printing of images. The bright colours juxtaposed with the dim and bleached palette stress the controversy behind the glamorous and yet toxic fashion industry. The imagery of dying an endangered species exposes the grave consequences facing us as each new item emerges on the market. The book conveys awareness and reminds people of the not-so-sparkling beauty behind their favourite brands. The list is long and toxic, with companies like Nike, Adidas, Gap, and Armani at the top.
