Self Portrait

 

Nine stripes for nine members of my immediate family, each stripe made of seven lines representing my seven siblings, each line made of multiple other lines representing those who support each of us. Do you see yourself? This piece challenges concepts we hold of individuality, and speaks to the the relationship between of the individual, the community and society.

To document this project photos are taken of individuals or groups of people engaging with the blanket in an environment that means something to them. Photos were intentionally taken so that neither the blanket, nor the people, nor the environment is the central focus of the scene.
