PSFK drew our attention to a phenomenal recent project by scultpor Derick Melander, who created a 3,500 pound+ sculpture, all from used clothing!  It’s quite beautiful art.  Carefully folded to a precise dimension, the clothes are sorted by color wave and stacked to create amazing works.

The video below is fascinating, and highlights the process of how he mobilized 30 volunteers to help construct a 5 foot x 5 foot sculpture.  My personal favorite line is when a little girl asks, “Have you ever found underwear?!”, to which the volunteer kindly responds, “Yeah, there’s a special pile for underwear”.  So cute!
