Please Hug
Artist Statement
Heather Bal

With this piece I was interested in a garment being the trigger for our memory. I always seem to remember events by what I wore if it was meant only for that occasion. In this case I wanted to dress up for an event that embodied contact of the memory trigger, in this case the dress. Everyone who came into contact with me should have a relation to the image of the dress with the sign pinned to it that says Please Hug.
In addition to this, the video shows moments in the event and how body language and facial expressions play a role in our communication.
