Soaked is an ongoing project using black, unwanted, punk and hardcore shirts that have been grown out of literally or figuratively. These shirts are collected from friends and people in my community, as well as from my own closet. The shirts are then bound and soaked in my urine for several weeks or months to produce the transformation—a technique that references both the processes of photography and the heavy exchange of bodily fluids that occurs at punk shows.
The collection so far has been archived into three separate zines. Each zine contains process shots from the studio, a selection of shirts from the archive, and portraits of a model in my studio wearing a shirt of their choosing. The following spreads are select excerpts from all three. The models for this work are self-identified fans of punk and hardcore. To participate as a model or to contribute your own shirts or urine, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This zine is available for purchase and for trade.
