White Shirt (2002 - 2005)

The white shirt is an everyday and ordinary object. Its simplicity on investigation reaches into complex questions concerning production, labour, value and the human-machine relationship. It is a metaphor for wider contextual debates involving distinctions between art, fashion, architecture and cultural issues pertaining to exclusivity, identity and belonging. The white shirt has been re-presented and re-worked within a series of explorations unravelling the interstices between hand, eye, brain, body and machine.
