Computer Wire Dress by Tina Sparkles

Systems Supernova

“Systems Supernova”, a dress made out of recycled computer wires created by Tina Sparkles for the Keep Austin Beautiful Recycled Fashion Show.

Made mostly of recycled computer wiring, the Systems Supernova dress addresses the growing problem of e-waste in American culture and explores the concept of systems thinking as it relates to our ecosystem. Each computer wire is situated in a closed loop system that interacts with all the other systems within the dress. Movement within one system influences other parts of the whole.
