Life in Diapers

A set of 40 painted cloth diapers chronicles my first year with my son. I chose diapers as my canvas because of their cultural symbolism. We often speak of raising children as being an endless job of changing diaper after diaper. Using diapers as a primary art material serves to honor our parents who changed all of our diapers.
