Anti-feminine rag dress
Black linen knee-length shift dress, machine sewed with full cotton lining; machine dyed dusters, dish-cloths and flannels (all cotton) screen printed with Selectasine pigments and opaque binder; the rags were then hand sewn onto the shift dress.
The floor covering below these dresses was the cotton backing cloth from the printing table used to print the deconstructed mens shirts, printed with the same screens and pigments. Then dyed and buried underground for 2 weeks, before being dug up and allowed to mold.
