Corinne Loperfido is a social practice artist whose colorful maximalist work spans visual & performance art, upcycled fashion & costume design, and community event production focused on women’s empowerment and environmental activism. Her most recent projects include Trash Temple at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe and her ornate tiny home on wheels made from mostly natural & reclaimed materials. In all areas of her work and life, Corinne focuses on using materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill in an effort to minimize her own impact and hopefully inspire others to reconsider their participation in our current system of extractive capitalism. 

Corinne integrates everything from discarded clothing from the fast fashion industry, to medical waste & e-waste to single use food & beverage packaging to create her floor-to-ceiling installations and immersive performance spaces. Weaving together materials that other people have sent "away", she uses these discarded resources to create new worlds where we value what we have and take care of the things that already exist instead of continuing to act as if our Earth is a bottomless pit for our consumption. Corinne Loperfido provokes cultural change at the same speed and scale of the numerous ecological and societal crises that confront us.s.
