Spinner Dress (2011) is an installation in which the viewers' interaction with the piece dictates the reactionary sound and movement. The piece is comprised of a dress reminiscent of the dresses worn by the Spinners, who would take vows of celibacy, attend Grateful Dead concerts and spin around as a form of worship. The dress, which is made from material woven from Grateful Dead concert bootleg cassette tapes, spins as the viewer approaches. The viewer has the opportunity to "play" the spinning dress using special gloves embedded with magnetic tape readers amplified by salvaged circuit-bended walkmen connected to a diy 8-channel surround sound system.
