2014

for this piece i asked my peers for articles of clothing that they no longer
fit into but still kept. i asked for their experience with weight and changing sizes
and how they felt about it. the responses were varied in subject and situations,
but each had the common feeling of wanting, missing, and growing. 

i embroidered a phrase from each person's response onto the piece
of clothing they gave to me. in this way, the person had a way to share
this part of their story and were able to let go of the tangible item 
that served no purpose other than an uncomfortable reminder.
