This ribbon installation, Day After Day, was part of an
interactive piece in which I invited visitors to add names of loved
ones lost to cancer. I then transferred the names and text onto
another black ribbon by burning the letters, forming words. I like
to use the softness and transparency of fabric. It becomes alive
when someone walks by it or the light changes.
This piece is a tribute to those women who are fighting or
have died from breast and ovarian cancer. Three years ago, one of my friends died of breast cancer. Days later, watching myself in the
mirror, the body I saw was not mine, it was my mother's. Where do we start and where do we end, like layers and layers of transparency flowing in circles?
