Double Adaptor is a group exhibition focusing on wearable sculpture at MARS Gallery, curated by Louise Meuwissen, by examining the relationship between the creation of desire for new products, inbuilt obsolescence in technology and fashion, and increasing awareness, signalling and branding around ethical design and sustainability. When considering sustainability through the lens of consumption, what role does technology play?
In the exhibition Isabel Avendano-Hazbun, Xanthe Dobbie, and John Gosper work with discarded technology and the overflow of virtual e-waste – data, images and information that circulates online – to create works that question how modern technologies shape and inform our individual and collective identity, ways of being, and how this may physically manifest through dress.
