project: valuables

rasley’s recent project has been about turning mundane, everyday objects and materials into something much more exciting and valuable.

The first valuable is a jacket that was made from reuseable shopping bags from the store Geysir.

Reusable bags have come in place for the plastic bags. That’s a very positive development for the environment but we have yet to rethink how we treat the reusable bag.

People tend to only use one or two reusable bags. Over time you have accumulated far more bags than you need and don’t quite know what to do to them.

rasley found a new purpose for the bags she owned, something much more exciting and valuable.
