Safety Pillow Room, 2022
cotton batting, parachute silk, cyanotype on paper
During the worst of Covid, when we were all sheltering in place, I made a giant, bright orange, safety pillow, as a visual reminder of our collective need for care and protection.
My architect father suddenly passed away during this time and I was unable to return home to grieve in real time with family. My safety pillow became a giant safety/grieving pillow.
The images in the monumental cyanotype, loosely aligned with architectural blueprints, are self-portraits. I welcome visitors to sink into the pillow and summon safety and comfort.
