would wear

i once painted a pair of jeans with white wall paint.
it got rock solid after it dried, so i couldn't walk or sit in it.
i thought washing it would soften it, so i machine washed it.
but it didn't turn out as planned... i thought it would just crackle
and be softer, but instead, all the paint came out
just as if i had never even painted it.

the shirt is an untitled installation from 2007
