Collapsed Arch: Sliding into Oblivion

Arch: a curved symmetrical formation spanning an opening and supporting a weight above it. Until recently, slides have been the preferred form of image submission by artists. With the development of digital photography, they have become an anachronism. This arched form consists of 240 altered slide mounts sewn with a Coptic stitch. The collapsed arch signifies the end of an era.

2 x 31.5 x 2 inches. 5 x 80 x 5 centimeters. Created 2018.
