"Silent Witness"
handmade paper, sewn

The dress is part of an ongoing installation project about domestic violence.  Each article of clothing represents social accountability and human fragility.  Each dress is a silent witness.  W speak of wars as if they only exist in far away places - most times, they exist just outside - or - inside our own doors.

  1. This is a fantastic piece, thank you so muh for sending it Stephanie! Very powerful. I used to be a foster parent for a couple of years taking care of sexually abused children. So I definitely know what goes on behind this statement. Bravo.
