In March of 2004 Mike Bouchet started to produce several thousand pairs of jeans in the country of Colombia. The jeans are of his own design, and have a unique style. They are “one size-fits-all” with an elastic waistband. Once the jeans were completed, Bouchet threw half of them out of an airplane in the region where they were produced. The remaining pants constitute a sculpture. Carpe Denim was the staring point for the series of Denim Paintings.
