The Unbroken Circle

2007-Five red wooden boxes sitting on 12ft. circles made of 60 children outfits of canvas stitched together. 22 patterns on the walls treated with shellac and put up with 2500 brads, with silk screened words “Everyday in America” and “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow in America.” Inside the boxes are alphabet blocks. Each box has a different statistic about children: 6 children die from abuse, 100,000 children are homeless, 8 children die from guns, 219 children die before their first birthday, 1534 babies are born to teenage girls. The audience is encouraged to take off their shoes, walk on the clothing and open the boxes.
