The Underwear Project

I was asked to do a project of 26 pieces that represented something that I saw every day and that changed everyday. Responding to my humorous gut I said, “ My Underwear”, thus was born The Underwear Project .

I started with detailed drawings, fabric pieces and impressions; moved on to photocopies, an instillation of ten hanging stitched and applied pieces, then to embossed  printings of underwear. Currently I am using the embossed pieces with the addition of metals, buttons, ribbons, pattern paper and anything that transforms the underwear from one’s typical perception to an altered vision.
