“Kings and queens who wear a suit but once, though made by some tailor or dressmaker to their majesties, cannot know the comfort of wearing a suit that fits.”  - Henry David Thoreau

 

To generate change in contemporary society, art must affect a wide audience.

Dressing oneself is a daily process that also requires intentional choices.  I utilize the greatly exaggerated act of clothing the body, to create dialogue about environmental consumption.
