Paper dresses fashioned after my own are the vehicles for recreating, albeit obliquely, stories inspired by the anthology Women’s Indian Captivity Narratives, first and secondhand accounts from the 1500s to the late 1800s.  In cobbling together these dresses, cutting and pasting cultures and perspectives side-by-side, the truths I re-imagine are both simple and complex, layered and transparent, reshaped through the passage of time and by my interpretation, much like identity itself.
