DRESSING ROOM 1, 2005

This project is made of about 30 blue oxford shirts that I systematically processed and formed into a cylindrical sculpture/enclosure. The modules were based on rectangles that made sense given the parts of typical shirts. I fabricated a circular rod to fit the top edge of the cylinder. Scroll below to see the finished piece.

With this project I pondered a fluctuating sense of individual privacy. Immersion in a blue personal space fosters calm solitude, despite the surroundings. Crisp geometry contrasts with the chaotic thrift stores where the shirts were found.
