description

Plastic strapping from the shipping of household appliances. 30' in length by varying width. I began weaving this sculpture a week before COVID hit the United States as a way to process a personal tragedy in my life. It formed into a ritualistic recording of COVID lock-down time and how our culture was responding in the moment. It continues to grow and is currently 30' long and exploding into contradictory forces rather than a regular cohesive fabric. The split in the time stream started with the rise of Black Lives Matter and the needed conflict that has brought. The new circular piece is a container for the structure of joining these opposing ends. At some point soon it will be time to attach it to the timeline as we work on finding a new pattern as humans together. I continue to take it into the local environment for reality testing.
