Temporary installation piece
Do You Bleed in Red?
mixed media
1996

Images and text were suspended with wax in large pieced together shrims of layered transparent materials including sheer fabrics and paper. Pieces were layered with wax and objects and images ironed between sheets. Text, sometimes original and some quotes from literature and poetry was embroidered onto the surface which served also to better hold the layers together. Other text in question forms were projected onto the shrims asking things like, "Do you bleed in red?" and "Can you hear the whisper?" The delicacy of the pieces caused them to sway in the slightest movement of air and react to people as they moved through the installation. The movement caused the projections to appear and disappear.suggesting an alternate barely held together reality.
