Day After Day
This ribbon installation, Day After Day, was part of an interactive piece in which I invited visitors to add names of loved ones lost to cancer. I then transferred the names and text onto another black ribbon by burning the letters, forming words. I like to use the softness and transparency of fabric. It becomes alive when someone walks by it or the light changes.
This piece is a tribute to those women who are fighting or have died from breast and ovarian cancer. Three years ago, one of my friends died of breast cancer. Days later, watching myself in the mirror, the body I saw was not mine, it was my mother's. Where do we start and where do we end, like layers and layers of transparency flowing in circles?
