Worry Encasements, August 2011

Multiple sculptural piece

In the traditional sense of the worry doll use; “Dolls [that] remove worries”, these sets are a literal take on the worry poised on the environment and the personal decisions we choose to make, regarding the environmental issues we each contemplate and live with. By owning a set according to folklore, the doll (in this case shell) ‘is thought to worry in the person’s place, thereby permitting the person to sleep peacefully’; in short to encase an ecological worry.
