Bearing Witness

Our clothing are vessels for our body.  Silent witnesses to our lives, they quietly contain the experiences we have on a day to day basis.  Our thoughts, hopes, emotions, are all contained within us; our clothing become imbibed with our 'being.'  Over 18 days, I took my garments and attempted to tie them into a perfect sphere.  The sphere, representative of non-hierarchical balance one strives for in their lives, was near perfect some days and lumpy the next.  It stood as a reminder of our aspirations for this perfection- it is a constant endeavor; not a skill to be acquired but a work-in-progress at all times.
