androgyforms (made with self & white t-shirt) | 2008 | 13 lightjet photographic prints | 6.5"x20" each
I have a childlike fascination with human bodies, both male and female…skin, hair, bulges, and recesses…Hair and clothing both cover skin. Clothing, is the cultural coverage. Hair, is the genetic cloak. Clothing and hair signify gender by revealing or concealing skin and the forms of the body beneath it. In this piece, a white t-shirt, a gender neutral adornment, becomes material to reveal and conceal the skin, hair, bulges, and recesses to make androgynous living sculptures.
