Size:
15″ x 11.25″

Materials:
120 lb. white paper and pencil

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

The opening in the curved wall allows the average person to stand in the gap and peer inside. As they do so, their clothing acts as a bridge, transforming the arc into a circle.

Clothing Wall, 2003

Clothing Wall, 2003

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.
