Abstract:The ‘Making it Real’ installation was held at Leeds Trinity Shopping Centre (7-8th February 2015). Developing from the idea that overconsumption of clothing is driven in part by a disconnection from the processes that produce the products we buy; this exhibition sought to highlight the backstory to our clothing by showcasing the complex steps involved in the manufacture of a seemingly simple t-shirt. Present at the installation was Dr Rob Speranza of the South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network, who shot a documentary style video of the event. This documentary comprises interviews with the academic team, the manufacturing team and some members of the public who interacted with the exhibition. There are two versions of the video available to watch; a 3 minute summary video and the full 20 minute documentary (PENDING)
