I used a skirt made of a sequined fabric, no doubt manufactured in piece-work and on the double, and loosened some of the sequins. Carefully undoing some 20 cm took me almost 60 minutes—absurd? In bulk commodity production, every minute less counts as a profit. Apart from that, no matter how far away these goods are produced, they can be shipped at extremely low cost on huge container vessels. Glued together in a cluster, the undone sequins now cover a low-res bitmapped print of a gigantic container port somewhere in Asia.
