Fur Suit, From the series Testament, 16”x20”, Pigment Ink on Fiber Rag, 2014

The fur suit in this photograph is made from a garment I first patterned and sewed, and then covered in brown sheep’s wool. The wool is needle-felted inch by inch onto the surface of the garment. The suit renders the wearer quite vulnerable and dependent, much like the animal whose wool was used to fabricate it.
