Clothing’s ability to stand on its own is at play in this installation. To give greater visual weight to the clothing I used recycled sheet-lead. I couldn’t help but think of how different x-ray and scanning devices can’t penetrate lead, a recycled medium with which I love to work. This is a quality clothing shares, insofar as it hides(to a certain degree) the body underneath.

Once you take away the body underneath, what does clothing, as it still hangs, say about the wearer?

Installed at the Rio Gallery in Salt Lake City the summer of 2005.
