Panty Slang
2007
installation of crocheted cords suspending nylon wrapped cardboard
A narrow hallway was filled with suspended cardboard forms that had been wrapped in bubble wrap and then covered with hand dyed nylons. The installation acted as a rebellious act against the constricting qualities of panty hose. Each nylon wrapped form was stenciled with the word panty hose, nylon or silk stocking in English and other Germanic languages. These were then suspended loosely from the ceiling with crocheted chains that would allow for the participants to push and punch their way through the installation.
