For this capsule collection for Buddy, each garment has been sourced from secondhand retailers in Chicago and the midwest. Many of these garments have undergone dye processes using natural material from the local landscape including grasses, mosses, fruits, and mud.
Each digital navigator tee is hand dyed with either natural or synthetic material and allover printed using a variety of print methods to superimpose unique images sourced from google earth that resonate with a sense of placelessness as a result of interactions with digital space. Dimensions: Variable Materials: Variable (see item variants section)
Nick D’Alessandro’s work investigates the aesthetics of a human experience where the mind and body are just as responsive - if not more - to digital space/time. Systems of portable technology and fashion are parallel, and disposed on independent timelines by design, yet their epitome is entirely dependent on their site: the body. Products made under Nick’s business, WWWYRED, recover discarded histories embedded in garments and reimagine their context in a digital space.
