People we meet continue to stare, smile or sometimes cast a frown. Perhaps the most surprising element of this project has been the discomfort I feel in the morning when I need to don the suit and face scrutiny.
I have gained a measure of sympathy for those of us who can’t help but stand out, can never really hide among the crowd. Now curious gazes follow us wherever we go (remember Yvette is following the same rules). When I tell people, “This (gesturing at the suit) is an art project” there is a visible relief on their faces quickly followed up with “I was wondering…”
We are question marks moving through this place.
