Wanting to capture the paradox that consumers are encouraged to express their individuality through universally produced commodities, I turned to the emblematic example of denim jeans. I wanted to study its materiality (essentially it is a simple twill-woven structure dyed blue) to find out what makes it so versatile, attractive, and full of possibilities. I selected several patches from discarded denim products from the textile industry, and started, quite literally, unraveling them. I subsequently connected the patches by responding to the material’s features and shapes.
