I want you to remember your true nature. I want you to synesthetize. I want to bring you along on the adventure.
I aim to invite these feelings by engaging with the particular sets of limitations imposed by a selection of materials, tools, and contexts. Often but by no means exclusively, these include silk, wool, watercolor, domestic knitting machines, oils, dyes, crochet hooks, paint brushes, leather, sewing machines, video, writing, and photography, and so on.
It is one of my hopes that my work will cause you to you dwell on the following questions:
How can I differentiate between a virtual and material experience?
How can I have more meaningful interactions with both kinds of experience?
