20 dress shirts, silkscreened with visible and invisible ink, automated iron
Iron is an installation consisting of an ironing board with an iron attached to an automated arm. Each day one white dress shirt is placed on the ironing board. Throughout the course of the day an invisible hand presses the shirt, revealing the text. The ‘gun shot’ steam connects the domestic appliance to a long history of servitude. Other shirt text morphs the iron into an anti terrorist weapon able to detoxify anthrax.
