- With my love for Levis and my separate closet just for blue jeans, who would have thunk to build a sculpture? Jeans usually last about 3 weeks of wearing before getting washed (shush!) and basically stand up on their own in a sculpture like formation. British architect Ian Mcchesney takes us to a whole new level of putting together an outfit. This outfit of jeans he has made is fit for the Guggenheim ~AB
Coinciding with the launch of the Levi’s® Water<Less jeans – made using significantly less water, this sculpture is based on water and fluidity – over 100 pairs of jeans are fixed together in the form of a giant whirlpool. The piece uses 120 pairs of jeans riveted together using over 1000 copper rivets. It measures 9.4 x 4.8m and is 3m high. It was designed by Ian McChesney and Fabricated by ‘millimetre’.
