World 2, Exploration A

Natural dye shop fashion shot.

One of the groups at the pilot Stage 2 workshop in February 2020 created the Instagram account for an influential natural dye shop in World 2 – where chemical dyes have been banned for 50 years.

After the workshop, the group undertook a pilot Stage 3 ‘everyday dress’ project, dressing as if they lived in World 2 every Thursday for six weeks.

This Stage 2 and Stage 3 Exploration was contributed by Amanda Langdown, Anushka Tay, Jayne Childs and Sarah Gotheridge (located in the UK), developed from a World contributed by Amy Twigger Holroyd, using a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International licence which allows others to share and adapt the work in any medium and for any purpose, providing that they credit the authors and share their material using the same Creative Commons licence.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
