what my mother wore
[necessity is the mother of invention]

Aim: To catalogue fashion objects I own and reflect on their significance.

Why: To prepare for an upcoming NFT project, I am uploading illustrations of select fashion objects onto web2 and pinning their meaning so they can be used as “raw materials” for building a story/place in web3. To record the item’s origins. To record my feelings regarding it at a specific moment in time. To preserve personal, familial, cultural details, such as memories and relationships formed around the object.

How: Create three consecutive Instagram posts for each object: a reel, a carousel, and an illustration. Use the hashtags #whatmymotherwore and #necessityisthemotherofinvention alongside an explanation of my “Need” for the object.
