Textiles are inherently close to us. We sleep in them, dry ourselves off with them and wear them as clothes. We sling them over windows, tables, and floors. Textiles are so close to us that we are even a little unaware of their existence. In this series, conventional objects are recreated through a change in material, and as a result, provoke alternative feelings. A purse is reconstructed with hair extensions; a nightstand turns soft and plush; the walls of a bedroom are woven to create soft, fluid forms. Using techniques associated with fabric, such as knotting, sowing and weaving, textiles become the protagonist in this three-part, grotesque series.
