[ Sock Bunnies ]

At the time I started a short project in 2003, I had as little information about my foster family as I did for my birth family. However they gave me a few things, some baby photographs, my name Jessica Jane (JJ) and a hand made sock bunny.

I felt if I examined the sock bunny it would reveal some secret or truth I didn’t know about the kind of people they were just from the way it was stitched.

In 2006 I developed this idea into a Whisper Residency I did at the Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester. There is a whole site dedicated to the project which goes into much more depth about the project, the details of each bunny and who adopted them, including some blogs by adopters. It also has photos given to me by my foster family. And more amazing it has more about when I reconnected with my lost foster family in 2011!
