I use text/ile production to shuttle between social intervention, memorial and an obsession with unseen forces like memory, haunting and emotions born from trauma. I think of weaving as the crossing of any two forces held under tension, this allows me to work with tension as creative material in physical, social and emotional forms.
My objects and performances are interventions that respond to tension requiring months to research and months to make. I am fascinated by how the ancient technology of weaving can offer contemporary insights into human patterns. For me, every space, material and object is alive with memory and is as a collaborator in the artmaking process.
