Graduate School Work: Thesis in Progress, focusing on trauma
The Wedding Dress is made from toe tags from a morgue that have been soaked in goats blood, my wedding veil and petticoat, copper and steel wire, a dress form, watch parts, metal trinkets, beeswax and fosshape. Each toe tag contains a wedding vow, wedding date, and wedding city. There are 500 tags on the dress. By the end of the project, I stomped on the tags with muddy boots.
