on my way to MICA's fiberdepartment i started to look out for Y-shaped forms. i collect, put every single item in a little transpartent plastic bag and put a date on it.
how to present: around 100 little founded y-shaped forms surrounded by little plastic bags will be arranged well organized on a wall. in some parts of the installation 1-3 little personal itmes, i brought with me to america, will be sparingly displayed. these items, like pictures, will refer on my past and where i come from. the 'i-found-y' collection is still in process and growing.
y-suit is finished and a selected piece of the 'fresh' exhibition in Baltimore, since today.
i crocheted 4 days and 4 nights a wearable y-shaped-bodysuit out of 5 fullsized cotton bedsheets (2 of them are tommy hilfiger bedsheets). i made my own yarn by cutting bedsheets in slices and sewing them together afterwards. i also made my own crochet-needle out of a wooden stick.
i found a broken record in my building, 'hands on you' by the raspberries. i made a hundred pieces out of the record by using rough tools.
after that, i rearranged the hundred diffrent record shapes tidy and clearly and presented them all in a installation while my notebook, covered with a boombox illustration, was playing the original song 'hands on you' by the raspberries.
