1.0 Abstract

Installation art can be described in many ways, it is usually referred as conceptual art which is sit specific, it is developed in such a way that the art is filled with desperate items that evoke complex and multiple association of thoughts and creates a mood. The materials used in the installation influences the way we experience or perceive a particular space. The previous report discusses the various installation arts that were taken as inspiration to develop a new conceptual installation art. The main objective of the report is to define the various stages of the design process that is involved in the development of the new installation art which describes the inhumanity towards animals. Fashion industry was taken into consideration for the usage of fur in fashion garments. Desk research methods like literature review were collected to understand the topic in depth. Inspirations were taken from the first part of the research to derive at a design solution which is presented in the report. The report may not be a solution for the problem stated in the report, but may have an impact on the passerby. And it is not specifically addressing any group of people or companies; the report generally describes the inhumanity towards animals in fashion industry.

1.1 Inhumanity towards Animals

1.2 Animals used for clothing

(PETA , 2012) Every year number of animals is killed for the clothing industry. An immeasurable amount of suffering goes into the every garment made of fur, leather, or wool. The most commonly fur bearing animals are minks followed by foxes. 48% of the mink farms are in Europe, 10% are in North America and rest is spread across the world in places like china, Argentina and Russia. Fashion industry uses fur predominantly where large number of animals are killed to make apparel products like coat, scarf and other accessories.

Approximately it takes up to 65 mink or 60 rabbits to make a full length coat. Most of the people see fur as any other fabric that has been produced without thinking about the suffering caused to the animal from which it came from. (animals rights and abuse, 2012) China produces 85% of the fur on the planet and it has no law that opposes the animal cruelty. All this is done in the name of fashion. Most of the leather comes from some countries like India. The amount of energy needed to produce a real fur garment is 20 times more that needed to produce a fake fur. The demand for the fur in fashion industry is constantly increasing from past decades, this may be because if lack of laws and no penalties for abusing animals. 1.3 Environmental Destruction

As the fact that is clearly known from high fur production is that environmental destruction a real fur is environmental unfriendly, because animal skin once removed will rot hence to use in apparel and fashion industry it is treated with various chemicals which are toxic, that are environmentally harmful chemicals and the waste released from it is toxic and hazardous to human and nature both. (Environmental impacts of fur , 2012) a study conducted in 2009 conducted in Netherland to determine the impact of fur production on the environment, it’s found that with the regard to environmental issue such as the land and water used for fur production is more toxic and also leads to climatic change it is much more harmful than producing other manmade textiles. The use of fur...
