In 2009 I began Collapse, a project in which I unstitched my three-piece wedding suit and use the resulting pieces as templates in order to create meticulous replicas in alternate, nontraditional materials. I recently installed all six suits at the Nashville International Airport. The exhibition will be on view until March 1st, 2015. These images were taken during the Arts at the Airport opening reception.
