Social Sculpture

Social Sculpture, 2009
secondhand clothing purchased in Bridgeport, thread, rope

Constructed out of secondhand clothing sewn together into a piece of provisional architecture for visitors to inhabit throughout the evening. This conglomeration of clothing linked participants’ bodies and forged intimacy. The asymmetrical web of everyday attire wove its way through the architecture of the backyard. While the sculpture had a domestic logic visible even without inhabitants, the work was completed through embodiment and the social interactions that resulted from these material parameters.
