About

The Salvage Series embodies and reframes narratives of 1950’s industrial chic, 1970s globalization, 1990’s technological dominance, and the Millennial’s narrative of environmental stewardship through the lens of a rebalanced economic ideal that values labor over capital, sufficiency over growth, and relationships over individual identity. By self-manufacturing products of need, using primarily scrap materials, and bartering the excess, The Salvage Series drafts a new narrative of circular material flows, co-dependent community building, and co-created economies. The artificial wave of economic well-being that’s accelerating the gap between the wealthy and the non-wealthy while obliterating entire futures of generations to come can be stemmed by smaller, localized, craft and labor focused businesses that meet needs without artificially hyping up individual desires and which embody and spread the articles of faith of “Enough is the New More”.
