Blue Tension was created for an Art Studio class during my senior year at Cranbrook High School. During that time in my life, like so many other seniors, I felt pulled in all directions, not knowing who I really am. Describing the way I felt, the shape of this dress is constructed to look full, as though someone is wearing it. Yet, the dress is empty inside and is pulled by outside forces. Threads are coming out of the seams, holding the dress in shape, suspending and tying the dress to the box. Since that time in high school I am finding myself thread by thread and seam by seam.
