Can it change?

Using real-time data visualisation as a social commentary.

What if you and your friend bought the same t-shirt from an online website at different timings (say you bought in the morning and he bought in the evening) but surprisingly the design is different? This project tries to answer the question - Can fashion be a medium for social commentary for the things happening around us? The design attributes of the product is subjected to change according to an ecological data. In this case, water pollution data from plastic waste dump into ocean is used to change the design attributes of the t-shirt design. This project uses artistic data visualisation (eco - visualisation) to convey complex data like pollution through a daily-used object like t-shirt.

Tools: Processing programming (p5.js), Adobe illustrator.
