Not By Bread Alone – 1994

Over 150 people healing from eating disorders from the local Southeastern Massachusetts area creatively expressed their personal experiences onto slices of clay bread, regarding the theme of this culture’s obsession with food, weight and body image. The bread was then hung as the walls of a house that the viewer walks through from dark to light, as a rite of passage, illustrating the potential that creative expression has for healing. This collaborative artwork exposes the cultural manipulations that are so powerful and insidious, and by revealing a common community, tangible hope is offered for a future out of this obsession.
