Body Mat

Body Mat is a project that documents excess. I used my body as a test subject to track weight loss by counting the bites and chews of my food intake, which resulted in a drastic loss of weight over a short period of time. The excess of clothes have been repurposed to make up a large relational piece where viewers are encouraged to lounge, feel and touch, with their entire body. As a critique on the body, excess, modes of efficiency and control, this work becomes a stage for communal gathering, a shift from the singular to communal.
