An arc of stacked clothing with a network of belts providing lateral support.

Clothing Loop, 2004

edition of 10

Approximate Size:
6 5/8″ x 4 3/8″ x 2 1/2″ (H x W x D)

Materials:
Cut & folded paper

Description:
Made from a long scroll of heavy rag paper which is cut, folded and glued into a five layered box.

The order of the silhouettes correlate to the way we layer the clothing we wear. A trench coat forms the outer layer while a t-shirt and a pair of briefs delineate the inside edge.

The resulting configuration allows the viewer to to peer through four progressively smaller openings toward a thin sheet of pink skikibu paper. This paper floats within the final frame, casting a warm glow throughout.
