Can Can Tu Tu
This is wearable, though really uncomfortable! I hung it in the Art Guild tent during the Sustainable Ballard Festival Oct. 2006. I wonder how it would look wired, maybe call it the Lysistrata Chandelier!
The bodice is made from road kill cans, starting with the Schmidt's wolf that was too beautiful to leave on the pavement. The skirt is tulle with a little spray paint and intermittent beads. The note at the hem is in memory of Subculture Joe, a late, great, local artist- the dude who put the ball and chain on the Hammering Man.
