Hair, organza, perspex tables
Now I lay me down to sleep 2000
This exhibition partnered artists with designers. I was partnered with Sandra Alcorn, a dress designer. We collaboratively created a work that featured 2 organza pillows embroidered with hair that spelled out the words sleep and dream. These delicate pillows sat on slender perspex tables within a large organza structure. The overall effect was ethereal and dreamlike. Sandra also created a beautifully romantic dress and I included a row of books suspended between two lightboxes that featured images of ears.
