Shelter In Place, 2006, 45 in x 66 in, archival digital print
We contracted with a professional Dominatrix to ‘mummify’ us, as the audience and three surveillance cameras watched on. Following the advice of the United States Government, we used Saran Wrap and Duct Tape to “Shelter In Place”. Crumpled up paper had been inserted to protect the skin from scissor injury. Instead of newspaper, which is typically used, the protective pages were copies of the United States Constitution.
