Exhibition at Globe Dye Works, a former manufacturing facility in the Frankford section of Philadelphia that bleached and dyed textiles from 1865 - 2005. One of 17 participating artists. The Globe Wedding
Archived Globe Dye Works in-house newsletters from the 1940’s inspired the work. A 12’ high suspended wedding dress became the viewing screen for a video loop of farm animals, illustrating the Globe custom of sending off brides with “prize” animals to accompany them to their new homes. Incorporating a headpiece with a flowing veil, sound work mixing wedding reception sounds with clips of live recordings of period wedding songs and animal sounds, the installation connects the current condition of the factory with grander times.
