Cities Made From Clothing

Jill Harness

Artist Yin Xiuzhen takes clothing from any given city's inhabitants and uses it to construct a stunning replica of the city—inside of a suitcase.

“When I began this series, I was constantly traveling,” says the artist. “I saw the baggage conveyor at the baggage claim every time I traveled. Many people waited there. I was one of them. Since I always traveled with a huge suitcase, it felt like I was traveling with my home.”
