Business Card Into Original Pant

I made my “Agency pants” soon after quitting my job at an Internet services firm. I spent 2 1/2 years there and watched it grow way too fast through the Internet heyday, and then take a complete nose-dive. After I had left the company, there were so many emotions rolling around inside, from anger to jealousy to sadness. It’s hard to watch something you’ve devoted so much time to fall apart and take many of your friends with it. I wanted to express that in sculpture, and I kept coming back to “pants”. It just made sense: Losing your job is like losing your pants, it leaves you naked. And the business cards complete the piece. Business cards are a status symbol; people love flashing them around. They’re something that people hide behind too, like clothes. On a lighter note, it’s just hilarious to think about a white collar worker forced to clothe himself in business cards to get by. I also thought pants were a beautiful metaphor for the Internet world because, as I sat there in front of my sewing machine, I thought, “So this is what a sweatshop feels like”…I laughed to myself because Internet firms are sometimes called, “webshops.”
