Security Blanket (2006) 4’h x 5’w x 8’d, Fabric and chairs
This quilt like map of my neighborhood was created using information obtained from California’s Megan’s law website. The quilt documents sex offenders living within a 2 mile radius of my home (of which there are over 90). From a distance it appears as a children’s quilt with each patterned square representing a city block. Upon closer examination viewers see images of each offender on a fabric flap which when lifted reveals information about them such as their name, age, address and offense.
