A set of wearable sculptures recreating descriptions of phantom limbs in medical literature. This work was created under a larger set of questions regarding the ways the body carries otherness and marks the beginning of my inquiry into subjectivity. This phenomenon presents a phantom itch for empirical thinking because it cannot be explained, observed, or quantified


This pain presents a unique problem in terms of measurement, because somewhere between 0 and 10 the flesh remembers what the body forgets.

Each piece is formed to different parts of my body, made with blown glass. The set is partially mirrored from the inside, alluding to the mirror box therapy. Each piece is fitted iwth natural tanned leather.
