Metafauna

This collection comes about through our mutual love of thrifting. We believe that our job in the era of late capitalism is reconfiguring the excess that ease of production has created into something new. This work blends aesthetics, time periods, socio-economic associations, genres, and our collective mediums into ready to wear garments. Through the fabrication of these pieces we are paying homage to an intuitive, empathetic, and organic way of making that has fallen out of favor in the rise of immaterial production. It is both a reflection on, and celebration of, the ever-accelerating flattening of space and time that takes place in the virtual realm of the internet.
