The World Wide Web on Foot: Stories from Urban and Rural Foraging

Annie Temmink '11 joins Dean Rusk to discuss sustainable art and how the concept of sustainability varies from culture to culture. Her lecture will draw upon her travels to study fashion and textiles as a Thomas J. Watson Fellow. From Indonesia to Japan, India to Uganda and Tanzania, Temmink worked with village women, prepared plants for organic dyes and explored the factories that produce clothing for brand name stores. Now, she transforms repurposed clothing into sculpture for solo exhibitions and larger installations and she blogs for the Chicago-area Goodwill.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
