The slip is a uniquely feminine undergarment that is traditionally unseen. The slip becomes a stand in for the female model in this body of work. Through the placement of the slip the viewer is left to make judgments about who this person is and what her place is in society, allowing for different narratives. The slips communicate presence, yet, they are empty shells embodying the struggles women still face in today's contemporary society.
