Words on white fabric: journal that I wrote during my visits to the

Spring of Tampa Bay, Inc. September through November
Sculpture: I did this piece with the technical assistance of Irineo U.

Cabreros, Jr. and the guidance of Rozalinda Bocila, both from the Art
Department at the University of South Florida.



Ideas behind the installation:


The words floating above the sculpture are literary the generating force
of the piece. Without the interaction with the women at the shelter
nothing could have been done.

The heavy piece under the fabric strip is a representation of the
condition of women in a battered situation. While the women is
represented by heavy column, which represent their strength to cope
with the battering situation, the wood frame and the curtains represents
the means which some of this women use to cover the real problem.
