Social Acupuncture/Social Meditation : All the Bandages
Meditation : All the Bandages
is a cross installation/wearable. The idea was initially
inspired from the unnecessary polarity in the art world
between fine artists and craft artists. There is an
invisible wall between the two with some snobbery thrown in
which causes limitations in creative thinking. My work, in
general, tends to live in the space between these two worlds
and often has trouble finding a place to rest.
The custom T-shirts you see
here you represent the
individuals in the world who you pass every day. You may be
one of them, in fact, I’m sure you are one of them, as am I.
We all have internal scars and baggage which makes us who we
are. So, what if we could see this damage on everyone as
they pass us in the street? What if you were looking at this
evidence of pain as someone said something rude to you or
pushed in front of you? Would you react to them differently?
Each of these T-shirts is original and represents an
individual. Each “bandage” sewn on with “scar tissue”
stitches, represents a life and the struggle that person has
overcome to continue on, wearing their baggage on the
outside. Interested in wearing a piece of art in your
everyday life? Be part of the installation...
