Scarf, Banned scarf
In 2017, Brooklyn-based fashion label Slow Factory partnered with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to create a collection of garments that responded to President Donald Trump's immigration ban on several Muslim-majority countries. Using open data and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) satellite images, Vernon created a scarf with the word “Banned” across the night sky over the Middle East, where many of the prohibited countries are located.
