Fitted/Flat Sheets
(Zipper Series), 2005

Pigmented cotton handmade paper, zipper

14 in h x 11 in w each, Suite of 2

In collaboration with Dieu Donné Papermill, New York

In this series, the flesh-colored paper alludes to the body, while the zippers make reference to elements of clothing. The forms suggest the body in a state of flux, constantly shifting or mutating. The flat sheets of handmade paper can be zipped up, altering the shape of the piece and creating a three-dimensional form.
