Yellow Dress Fantasies

Description: A 15’ yellow and white children’s dress suspended from the ceiling. The participant was invited to enter the dress, possible only by lifting the bottom of the skirt. Inside there was a mount of mixed sand and Johnson’s baby powder and above that an old wooden swing. The participant could swing inside the dress, feeling the surrounding fabric on the body and the sand and a slight baby powder smell on the feet.
