I designed and hand inked this image and converted it into a photo silkscreen. I then pulled the prints in a limited run/edition of 60, onto basic white, male and female underpants, T-shirts and camisoles. Each garment has a retail tag attached to it, on which the number in the edition is listed, along with the size and price of the garment. The fundamental underpinnings of a modern way of life, based in a monetary exchange of objects of quasi value as opposed to the Daoist idea of "The Way" are primary to this work.

Viewers truly can purchase a garment for only $25, and wear it everyday as a testament to their underlying belief in "The Way".
