I spent the month in NYC and participated in an Artist Residency on Governors Island. I created a Public Art Project titled ‘ONENESS’ Lost Sock Project. I collected lost socks at laundry mats and went to tailors to get remnants in the Lower East Side. I had the public stuff and sew the socks together to create a long tubular form.It was a collaborative project to celebrate our diversity and to create connections.
Here are some photos that capture the project.
Visited Tailors in the Lower East Side and they gave me fabric scraps to use to stuff the lost socks.
Socks collected at Laundromats throughout the Lower East Side
Residency on Governors Island, 10 minutes by ferry off the south end of Manhattan. Throughout the summer the City of New York dedicated this small Island to the arts. On the weekend the studios opened up to the public where hundred’s came and participated and viewed art.
