Cornered

 

On-going series, site specific, installed in a corner using the two walls, ceiling and floor 

dimensions vary

1 deconstructed cotton t-shirt, filament, wire

2009 - ongoing site specific installations

 

This series explores the isolation of reduced circumstances using cast off materials compressed into the left over space of a corner. Each installation is unique, like a three dimensional drawing. Each piece is made from one T-shirt cut in the same pattern: one long strip from the end of one sleeve to the neck to the end of the other sleeve. Nothing from the shirt is cut off or left out so the surface area of the shirt tells it's own story. The piece is stapled into the floor, walls, and ceiling of the corner.
