The huge ball of wool is reminiscent of the ball that children play with, and at the same time refers to the exploitation of child labour. The wool ball is made from knitwear purchased at low prices in fast fashion shops.
The knitwear destined for the waste bag has been completely undone and the wool obtained has been reused, as was customary in the past.
The ball was made with a 2'587 metre long wool cord obtained by working every evening for 943 days.
Although the playful aspect collides formally with the tangible reality of modern slavery, in this work the ball of wool represents a sign of hope and marks the beginning of a new cycle: a metaphor for sustainable social construction.
