CHECKERED PAST
4 feet x 17 feet, sewn checks, 2010
Part of the Material Properties series

Central Concept and Technologies Used:

Checkered Past is a self portrait created through the performative act of tearing 1500 checks out of their books, throwing them in the air, and sewing them into a 17 x 17 foot matrix. The process was documented with video and photos, and exists as a wall sculpture that is 17 feet x 3 feet.
