Re-Dress is based on a traditional ceramic form from the nomadic Aztec culture which arrived in Mesoamerica around the beginning of the 13th century through the 15th century. The vessels were typically 18 (40 cm) inches high, while my vessel towers over most people at 6 feet (150 cm). The curved and long tail feathers used in this piece are made from recycled plastic, hand screen-printed with images of endangered birds and overprinted with text in Mexican indigenous languages like Yakme, Zoque and Cho’lol.

Medium: hand screen-printing on recycled plastic, sewing, fabric, wrapping, constructed with building foam and papier-mâché
