This piece evolved from an installation I had done with a similar title. It is a wearable time capsule from my lifetime: 1960's to present. The dress is made from PVC pipe and the items are sealed in FoodSaver bags and range from childhood cookie cutters with the dust from the 1960's to 1980's cassettes to modern day condoms amongst other items. Purchased by ManneqArt. The subject was new to modeling and was comfortable in the bodysuit. She became nervous about wearing heels and makeup when the suit was removed. This changed the meaning for me, as I realized it was now about growing from childhood into adulthood as she was fifteen and just becoming a woman. She now loves her makeup and heels.
