clothing, scotch tape
In my process, clothing is a surrogate for my body and tape references my skin. As I peel tape from the roll, microscopic residue of my skin collects upon each square. The squares are quickly adhered back to the “body” repetitively and continuously. Skin is displaced and then replaced on the body. In the final translation, my labor is deconstructed and transformed through photography. The flattening effect of photography converts the tape squares, seemingly, into pixels. The tape and the photography smother the clothing into flatness. Through all of my actions, the body is pulled between dematerialization and materialization, absence and presence, and real or digital space.
