The Carriers series, dimension variable, plastic bags hand-stitched onto fabric, 2014-15
The Carriers is a series of hand-stitched plasticized silhouettes of people that I photograph on the street and who carry physical weight. The volume is created by the plastic bag material itself. I'm interested in how the line of the body and the weight they carry become one and create new hybrid shapes. The bodies merge with their surrounding, people become a part of the environment they live in.
