Size:
15″ x 11.25″

Materials:
96 lb. white paper and pencil

Description:
To create this wall, I will use one or several systems when folding and stacking the clothing:

1. Arranging the clothing so that the men’s clothing is in one area, and the women’s is in another.
2. Placing the clothing that is worn on top of other layers (Sweaters, coats) at the bottom of the wall and clothing that is worn against the skin (T-shirts, underwear) at the top.
3. Layering the clothing in the order that I receive it, from the bottom of the wall to the top.

Suspension 4, 2002

Size:
6′ 7″ x 7′ x 7′ (H x W x D)

Materials:
Metal suitcase, acrylic, second-hand clothing, wood & steel

Description:
The outline of a male figure is carved through the lid of a vintage metal suitcase. The case is then painted with matte black paint inside and out.

The contrast between pure darkness and spectral black is subtle but with the help of a naturally occurring optical effect, we are able to discern the figure.
