Nicole Solis-Sison is a socially engaged artist and creative director based in Los Angeles, California. She has also developed virtual and augmented reality applications for companies like Gap and Google, and has shown works at Yerba Buena Center of the Arts in San Francisco, California. Equity, diversity, and sustainability are integral to her work in changing the way we view and engage in our communities.
Her project The Zero Waste Cart offers mending workshops to those who want to learn how to patch up garments that are normally turned away by tailors and seamstresses such as mending zippers, buttons, rips, etc. The cart also functions as a textile recycling center, a place for people to donate or take garments that would have otherwise ended up in the landfills due to the lack of space of already established donation centers.
