Evelyn Roth’s Video Trap

Evelyn Roth crocheted recycled TV station tape into this TV-and-body suit she called the Video Trap, which appears at about 4:00 in this video from the 70s. John Stone Davis, Evelyn’s husband, publishes videos of hers to his YouTube channel. [Thanks, Erica!]

    Becky Stern, I’m putting together a slide show of outrageous wearable art, like Evelyn Roth’s, for the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue Washington. Any chance you could send me the tv-videotape, computer knit ‘sweater’, in high resolutiion? The images you have in your blog are too tiny to project. Any other images you have like this would also be appreciated and I would credit you verbally and also in the program. Please send to lynndin@msn.com. . . thanks, Lynn
