THREAD INSTALLATIONS:
My installation practice is rooted in the craft of weaving—its technical processes, historical uses, and relationships to architecture. Using an environment’s unique architectural elements as my framework, I create lurching architectural interventions that draw upon textiles’ historical use as a means to divide and control space. Hand-strung on site, in a fashion mimicking the warping of a loom, these diaphanous walls of tension confront the viewer with an unexpected strength: these super-saturated planes of color control viewers’ space and movements, engendering feelings of vulnerability and underscoring the laborious processes of their fabrication. By interrupting natural passageways or highlighting existing architectural elements, I aim to bring attention to the constraints within our physical and psychological spaces, and in so doing, shift them.
