Pipe insulation, cable connections, lawn grid, 2018, 55"w x 36"h x 24"d

I am inspired by traditional weaving systems and constructed surface processes. I translate these fiber processes with items such as cable ties, pipe insulation and lawn grids to create visceral sculptural forms that evoke a playful, irreverent nature. My work is influenced by the history of textiles, particularly 1960s woven rya rugs and traditional Scandinavian rugs. I use zip ties as a sculptural line, and the ties stand out as pile from the woven rug. The lawn grid makes a grid structure like a traditional weaving structure. These materials allow me to connect disparate materials.
