The Story Behind:
Former British Army officer Captain Tom rose to fame during the first UK national lockdown. He planned to raise some money for the National Health Service by walking 100 laps of his garden, which quickly went viral. He raised over 30 million pounds and was subsequently knighted by the Queen. Captain Tom is now considered British Hero.
Within the digital realm, things can exist side by side that would be otherwise unimaginable in real life; pieces of information come together to create unexpected — and sometimes unwanted — dialogues. This year has seen the borders between our digital and physical existence diffuse like no other. This silk scarf is a timely document, paying homage to the many of us who spent so much time existing online this year. An absurd moment in digital time is extracted and brought into real time.
