'Shop' was simply the brief that we were given, and along with the brief we were given two words as 'inspiration' and ours were 'sweatshop' and 'thrift'.
The fact that our final outcome was based on was that the average pay for a sweatshop worker in India is 10p/item. So we set about setting up our own sweatshop, spending as little money as possible. Over the course of 3 days (or 36 hours) we succeeded in reaching our target of 300 10p cushions.
A short film was recorded over the three days and it was shown along with the sweatshop itself, wreaking of secondhand clothes and spray paint.
A smaller version of this piece was later shown and the KK outlet gallery.
