In 2009 I began a project in which I unstitched my three-piece wedding suit and created two replicas, one in burlap and one in tarp material. I then created a third suit, made from Carhartt's signature rust-brown cotton duck. Recently, I created a fourth suit made from quilted moving blankets. The suit is displayed inside of a hand-made disproportionatley large wardrobe box.
