We live in a disposable era, the majority of our clothes are purchased and worn once or twice before being replaced with something new. But what happens when the earth runs out of the resources we depend on so much to produce our fashion? Inspired by George Orwell's nineteen-eighty-four and Terry Gilliam's Brazil (1985), The future is junk is set only a few hundred years into the future where the human race has used up all of the worlds resources. We have only the stuff that has been thrown out over centuries past, forcing humans to combat our disposable nature and reclaim our discarded possessions and begin to recycle. One of the most available products to reclaim is plastic based material, as it takes thousands of years to biodegrade.
