In addition to the Re-Thanks project, I've been busy making a series titled "Warning Signals". From my individual collection efforts from the dump, I amassed a significant number of children's toys, clothing and school papers. These paired with other materials I found have come together in this series to question the messages we give to our children - as revealed through these discarded items. Each piece features a combination of textile techniques to assemble, attach and collage these disparate items in a cohesive series with a story. Here is a preview of some details - stay tuned for images of the entire series. (you might recognize Barbie from the home page of this website.)
