Making clothes from nontraditional materials and then performing them as moving sculptures is Murdock's artistic focus. Scarlett O'Hara and Maria von Trapp have nothing on her with their curtains-as-fabric clothes-making skills. Murdock has also used rope to make dresses connecting two people who test their limits of mobility from each other until they battle in a full-on tug-of-war for freedom. Her latest undertaking, Intention, is another fashion-as-sculpture project that will "explore the dynamics of freedom and choice." It also includes installation aspects and sound. She'll perform it Friday at The Casket Factory in South Dallas as part of an artist-in-residence project that's a collaboration between the University of Texas at Dallas and SouthSide on Lamar lofts and gallery. She'll also be one of the artists contributing to the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art's Piece Work exhibit in January. Apparently, Texas fits her like a glove, too.
