About Jennifer D.

In this grouping of 100 eleven inch tall figures, elements of the human body were printed on mylar, and hung away from the wall to create shadows. The repeated silhouette, taken from a clothing sizing chart, is a visual motif for our oversimplification of the human body, in terms of what it is and what it should be. Placing images of the corporeal body within this simple form emphasizes its impossibility and inappropriateness. These images are from the installations of this work at the Downtown Art Gallery in Los Angeles, CA and The Arts and Language Laboratory in New Haven, CT.
