Molly Vaughan: Project 42

Since 2012, Seattle artist Molly Vaughan has utilized her interdisciplinary approach to art-making to honor the lives of murdered transgender and gender non-conforming Americans with a series of works called Project 42. Through the creation of garments and diverse collaborative memorial actions, Vaughan raises awareness of the violence that transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, particularly trans women of color, face in contemporary American society with “42” referencing the average lifespan of someone in this community. Using Google Earth, Vaughan captures visual documentation of the murder location from multiple distances and angles. Within each capture, colors and shapes emerge directly from the site location and incorporated into a fabric pattern; then, a garment is made specific to each person.
