These socks have Warhol all over them. From the Marilyn-eyeshadow-blue to the Five petalled flowers, you might just think we’ve inscribed critiques of consumption onto - gasp - a buyable good. However, we at TSH just aren’t THAT post-modern (or cynical) yet.
However, what we are into is continuing Warhol’s perceptive, playful ideas while also finding new ways to transform consumable products. First things first, these socks are made of cotton. So here, consumable means not only “able to be bought,” but also able to be devoured by the earth thanks to cotton’s natural biodegradability.
Secondly, these socks are meant to have dirt all over them. Here, a Warhol-ian critique of consumption is extended to the consumer via a consumption-object. We aren’t making art from a soupcan, we’re making a (really jazzed up, lively) soup-can from art. On second thought, maybe that metaphor would work better if we said we were making an Empire State building from art. But we want to leave decisions of classification to you.
In any case, you’re free to hang the socks up in a museum or leave them online, but we’d rather you continue the story of their creation out on the road/path/trail. Let us know how things turn out.
