Q&A with Bruno Harding

Posted by Fiona Cable on

What images/things keep you company in the space where you work?

Odd nicknacks and photos collected from travels, I work best amongst a creative mess where everything is out apposed to neatly put away.

What was the first piece of art that really mattered to you?

This lovely drawing of a John Dory. 

If you could live with only one piece of art what would it be?

My kites, because when I have the window open on a windy day they dance around.

What do you wish you knew?

Japanese fluently. 

What is your favourite piece of clothing you own?

An old t-shirt of my Dads that is basically falling to bits so I don't wear it too often.

What should change in the clothing industry?

Producing only what is needed, making garments to last and not making cheap clothing that caters to passing trends that are meant to be thrown away when the next trend comes along.

When creating an artificial physical object such as a piece of clothing or art, we must always consider that it will eventually end up in a landfill or the ocean, this is something all industries need to be held accountable for; the waste they create and how it will be dealt with.

What should stay the same?

The ease of entry into the industry for young, new, forward thinking designers. 

What could you imagine doing if you didn’t do what you do?

Creating large outdoor sculptures that interact with nature.

What music are you listening to?

William Onyeabor - When the Going is Smooth & Good

What are you reading?

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!
