Made to mark an end to the year of empty buildings, From The Want Of Purse To the Crave Of Pout reflects Alex Schweder’s current creative direction that re-imagines his inflatable environments as ‘spatiosonic’ instruments. Working in collaboration with sound artists to develop these devices, sound and space produce each other.

Sanitise Hands Not Culture

„These T-shirts were once white, I found a lot of them stashed away in my wardrobe, the hope of a new white T-shirt, is a sort of lie, a hope of an unstained, un germed life.

Now the T-shirts are various shades of pink and gray, a kind of palimpsest of numerous bad washes. I screen printed them and then layered them up to make another palimpsest – There is no surface there is only layering. Sanitise Hands Not Culture.
BTW The Guinness World record for max t shirts worn at once is 260!“ FB
