Soft Shell

balloons, 2014, 60"w x 24"h x 4"d

I created this sensory textile device to assist with trauma recovery: a nonhuman, human-like object that feels like human skin when touched and has human-like weight when covered or hugged. This soft shell can be hung from the ceiling to create a textile division in a room or placed on a surface like a sculpture.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
