Like it or not, we are a wasteful society. We buy, we consume, we throw things away. Most of our everyday purchases have disposable packaging, our mailboxes are jammed with junk advertising campaigns, our shirt has a rip and we simply buy another. Trash is just a part of our throw-away culture. Artist Nancy Judd thinks there is a better way.

 

Judd loves the challenge of making garbage into elegant and glamorous garments and inspiring people to look differently at waste. Ms. Judd has been commissioned by major companies such as Target, Coca Cola Company and Delta Air Lines to create not only magnificent works of art, but to also convey the value of consumer consciousness and the future of our planet. Her creations have been exhibited worldwide and have caught the attention of major media including USA Today and CNN. In addition, one of her cre­ations, the Obamanos Coat, has recently been accepted into the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
