About WILBy (What I Live By):
Part art, part education, part business WILBy (What I Live By) is a new type of shopping experience, one that emphases buying nothing. More than any object offered for sale is chance to experience a thing as applied thoughtfulness in the world. Throughout the duration various installations, like The
Pop-Up [Ethical] Sweatshop visitors are challenged to browse products according to their overall ethics, not simply price and style and consider the impact of various modes of production and materials on our changing world, and identify consumption as a tool of civic engagement to support the values that they believe in.
The Inner Beauty Bar, another WILBy project is an acknowledgment that before any change can happen in the world, it first must happen within. The Inner Beauty Bar was created in collaboration with Julie Puttgen – artist and real-live-buddhist. The ongoing Inner Beauty Bar project is called 108namesofnow.
