World 54, Enactment i: film

Workshop participant fashioning a garment for herself from a discarded bedsheet and strap.

What if we lived in a world where textile production had ceased?

What if we had to make do with what we have right now?

This is what we asked in the Enactment of World 54. This film, created by Reece Straw for Fashion Fictions and Atlas of the Future, shares the insights that we came up with together.

Film by Reece Straw for Fashion Fictions and Atlas of the Future. Many thanks to the Enactment participants for generously agreeing to appear in the film.

This Enactment was devised by Amy Twigger Holroyd, building on an Exploration created by Elly Platt, Talia Hussain and Martin Benes, which was in turn developed from a World contributed by Suzanne Rowland, 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!
