rope and wire, 2015, 60"w x 60"h x 41"d

Objects are composed of many little, insignificant things. We tend to ignore the tiny aspects of larger things and favor the grand product. I believe that in life, inferior objects and materials—such as rope and wire—exist. Combining flaccid, weak rope with strong wire, I show that these materials exist together, the former using the latter to appear structural and unusual. The woven dome creates a space. The ends are messily left to show the material origins and process. The work has two major perspectives: from the outside looking in and from the inside looking out. Surround yourself with the meek materials it took to build this standing form.
