The Unquestioning Faith of a Child

A vintage dress beaded in Grade 1 Braille forms the central element of this work. The braille structure embodies a short paragraph of text directly translated and unchanged from a dream. The text covers the complete dress both front panel and back. The Victorian filigree cell’s which form the basis of the dress pattern are outlined with Japanese Seed beads and contain a unique position for each Braille letter.
