This is one of a series of "zip sculptures": sculptures which are embroidered forms, with embroidered writing within the form, writing which is only partly visible, or not at all. These sculptures again further explore the difficulty in 'opening up', expressing the self, speaking out, revealing inner thoughts or words.
By showing the sculpture as a photograph, another layer is accummulated, and the viewer is further distanced from the possibility of reading the words or phrase within.
