Walking Wounded: PROM

I just finished a series of Corsages I wanted to share with you. I had been thinking about Prom. How proms are full of corsages and forced intimacy. We all wear the same corsages and boutonnieres. We all get dressed up and yet we all have the requisite horror story that comes along with it. Then, I realized that prom is exactly like everything else. We get spruced up, our mom's take photos, and then we get sent out into the night pregnant with expectation and excitement and usually we end up nowhere how we thought or anticipated. So, the corsages are pinwheel monochromes mounted on stained wood, noting our repeated / similar experiences- each with its own story. Corsage 1: (RED)Lost virginity Corsage 2: (Green)Backseat '88 Volvo Station Wagon Corsage 3: (Yellow)Passed Out in the Yard Corsage 4: (Blue)Slept with Someone Else PROM:Group Corsage 5: Drunk Chaperone
