My artwork uncovers the ground that binds human beings together as one. This ground is the passage of time and its disappearance in a culture dominated by mass production and digital technology. My work restores the awareness of time. It endows material objects with histories of change, or it invests disembodied subjectivity with materiality to root them in the present.
Every shoe tells a story of where you have been and where you are going. For over 25 years I have repurposed individual shoes from my collection to create sculptures. More recently, I have shifted my practice to create larger scale assemblages that combine multiple shoes with everyday objects. By repurposing utilitarian objects that most people use, I act as a catalyst to bring out the passage of time hidden within them. This metamorphosis encourages the viewer to endow these overlooked objects with temporality and subjectivity, restoring the viewer’s own awareness of the dynamic changes of life.
Artwork from the If Shoes Could Talk Project and Jennifer's love for design come together to create a series of Trademarked artist books and accessories.
