REMAINS is the first in a series interactive public installations exhibited in store-front windows in several urban areas throughout the United States that intended to create public spaces for both private and public mourning related to the AIDS pandemic. They began with a series of very private, cathartic artworks that I made by using the clothing of artist friends who had died of AIDS who were participants in Positive Art, a 15 year community-based public art project that I began in 1988. The various objects and visual components of this installation were informed by traditional Jewish prescriptions for mourning for loved ones. Each installation invites the viewer to add layers of their own loss and grief by writing directly on the store-front windows.
