Mask Visits the Heidleberg Project

Three days work here. I am thinking a series of masks in different situations. The Heidleberg Project is an installation in inner city Detroit. It is amazing and wonderful. I was making a dress series one of the times I visited and he had arranged a line of dresses - the kind your grandmother might have work - or your great grandmother - depending on how old you are - on a fence marking the back line of a vacant lot. They were the Sunday morning go to church dresses of elderly women now discarded. I was just awestruck. The dresses were in varying stages of decay. The houses he owned and the street and the sidewalks and the cars he owned were all painted with brightly colored dots.
