The Body Project

This set of woven objects-of-adornment for the body, simply yet intentionally mirrors minimally the contours and profiles of body parts subjected to ornamentation such as neck, ear, hand and foot, referencing biblical text. It subliminally contrasts two narratives of the formation of the beauty of the human body; evolution, where form is evolved via lean selection of fittest, versus, the creationist where an All knowing Creator God has fashioned in beauty and original pre-Fall perfectness. This series of objects maps body contours to engage in discovery of what is a work of beauty, while sometimes deliberately spinning things in alignment perhaps to the hope embodied in the reference text “for it was You who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I have been fearfully and wonderfully made”
