Bombyx Mori: Silkworm series
The simple acts of threading and spinning hold my attention. The action of threading is an intimate one for me. Not in the sewing of repetitive stitches or quilting together of fragments, but as a personal binding and unbinding of handcrafted objects within movement itself. Like migration and displacement, this can be at once comforting, yet unsettling. Working with the properties of thread is a tactile experience that highlights actions of crafting, grafting, restricting, suspending and letting go.
