Dress to fly


Dress to fly reflects on bodies in space, in relation to the external environment. The intent it to expose the reality in which the individual depends on both the materials and themselves.

This site-sensitive installation is composed of a cube of wood, needles, thread, and a cotton dress. Large quantities of weight are held up by lightweight materials (the body weighs 47 kilos (103 lbs) and is held up by 57 threads of cotton yarn). The garment is sewn while the body is held up by a wooden cabinet. Once the garment is complete, the body is cradled by the threads, suspended in a white box. The body remains in this cocoon anywhere from 1-33 hours.
