Small Room Installation, 2017

  

All the figures are similar in shape and general size, however their nylon skins vary in tone.  The inner contents of each figure is made up of old, discarded, or unwanted fabric that is cut into small pieces.  By hand, I then fill each figure with these pieces and shape them to a desired form.  When photographing mass quantities of these abstract figures, the formation of a crowd becomes visible.  An essence of a crowd is the fusion of minds, where individuality becomes absent.
