A World of Things

By Steve Geary

For my thesis I catalogued my clothing items and documented the countries where they were manufactured. I then combined this information with public data about these countries in order to get a better understanding of how the people who make my clothes live. I had heard that people in third world countries worked in harsh conditions in the garment industry, but I wanted to nd out more for myself; both the good and the bad. I was also interested in the consumer nature of our culture which keeps us so far removed from the people who produce our goods. The result is part infographic, part anti-advertising campaign, wholly interesting, and way cool. 🙂
