Reflected Reality (work in progress)
This project is an interactive art installation accompanied by a database that addresses the adverse environmental effect of the global manufacturing process considering the textile industry of Bangladesh as a case study. The project Reflected Reality is an attempt to emphasize environmental communication and encourage our collective responsibility. The project will demonstrate that the developed countries share a crucial responsibility as the primary consumer of the products manufactured in these polluted countries. The project will outline different facets of environmental pollution and illustrates how people from these polluted countries suffer without getting the deserved benefit from the manufacturing process.
The installation showcases the dying process of the textile industry. The goal of this project is to remind the viewers how their colorful clothes cause water pollution by emitting harmful chemicals. This installation picks the colors from the participant's dress and flows them through the sculptural waterbody.
Method: image processing, painting fabrication.
Software: MATLAB, Arduino.
