THE GAME OF BASEBALL NEVER EVEN OCCURRED TO ME
Textiles are the hidden substrate of the world we inhabit. I utilize weaving techniques as a metaphor for emotional foundations. Entrapped objects imply memories that are foundational to a person’s experience – they are immutable features that can only be built upon, never removed. While we cannot change the past, we do have the power to create our future. I utilize textile processes – their time-intensiveness, their metaphor as foundational emotional materials – as a way to process my past experience to create meaning in the present.
