DIRTY LAUNDRY INSTALLATION

Not a day goes by that females do not judge their body negatively.  Sadly it can start at an early age, and females are becoming more and more susceptible to the pressures from society and become victims to eating disorders.  My installation encompasses the "dirty laundry" of the sociological demands for the perfect figure.  The numbers on the shirts are female measurements resembling that of inmate’s numbers, how one can be a prisoner of their own body.  Allowing these shirts to air outside juxtaposes ones intimate belongings with forcing the audience that all who walk by, all those who judge, male and female to see.  Allowing the element of nature to be a part of the environment, lends an opportunity to the fact that just like society, nature is unpredictable.  The possibility of rain or wind symbolically represents how physical perceptions could be eroded or washed away.
