It's All My Fault

I've been thinking about responsibility lately, and how the acceptance or denial of it can have both far-reaching and intimate consequences. Words On Shirts Project comes down—in essence—to personal responsibility for a commitment given through words, and how those words align with or depart from actions.

It's All My Fault is an art that I've been playing with since 2010. The pronoun is always an ambiguous player without its previously established context, and I like how many interpretations and reversals can be had from three words and a contraction. What is "it?" What is "all?" Who is "my?"

I had the labels made last spring, but then waited to accumulate enough clothing items to donate en masse to a thrift store. Now, they're finally out there. Smyrna Thrift Store in Smyrna, GA to be exact. There are some 10-odd XS female articles on the racks. If you have any clothing you'd like me to tag with a label before you donate, let me know.

Think you can find them? Cheap art, if nothing else.
