what it's like to be someone else

What It’s Like to Be Someone Else is about transformation, adaptation, and context. As I explore the forms and colors of the original items, I am conscious of the history inherent in each piece. These fabrics are imbued with the movements and personalities of the bodies that once inhabited them. Clothing impacts our sense of self and how we interact with the world; we try on new identities and leave behind what doesn’t fit. This sculpture literalizes the metaphor of the torn fabric of society by knitting divided and discarded identities into something new, beautiful, and hopeful.
