Fat and Felt Badge 2008 Embroidered Patch

In World War 2, injured and shot soldiers would be taken to military hospitals where they were restored back to health. It is rumored that on the road to recovery they were smeared with fat over their bodies and wrapped in felt to keep warm.

Using these two substances, very specific materials are used to signify specific concepts such as healing and society, eventually developing a theory based on the thought that all society can be considered a work of art, and that everyone is an artist.

By producing a sew on badge simply with the words ‘fat and felt’, the healing properties of the materials can be transferred onto the wearer, in the least rhetorically.
