MEMORIAL PROJECT (2001-ongoing)

This work explores the temporal and fragile nature of human existence and the link between memory and experience. From found and donated articles of clothing, I create simple memorials from the shirts, dresses, pants, skirts, underwear, sheets, and blankets we leave behind when we move or die. These relics are reminders that our clothing becomes our skin. They are meditations on the poetry of detail and are records of the delicacy of life.
