Artist Statement

The dress is a symbol of the phases and fragility of life. They echo of my daughters growing up and of loved ones passing on. Like an empty chrysalis the dress represents birth, growth and decay and the interconnectedness of all living things. It is a repository of the history of the person who once wore it. For centuries, beeswax has been used for preservation - here it symbolises the preservation of memories. The light projection is a collection of layered images - photographs, my daughter's drawings, ephemera - floating memories, fleeting moments.
